A Cincinnati man was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday for a 2020 shooting death in Liberty Twp.

Tyree Cross, 26, pleaded guilty last month to murder for the June 9, 2020, fatal shooting of Riah Milton.

Cross was one of three people charged in the slaying of the 25-year-old Cincinnati woman who detectives say was “lured” to a Liberty Twp. park so the suspects could steal her Camaro. A fight ensued, and Milton was shot to death in the 6000 block of Spruce Creek Drive. The suspects drove away in Milton’s car, which was eventually ditched in West Chester Twp.
