4 Sentenced For 2010 Kidnapping, Killing Of Woman

Posted: Updated:
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WLNS) - Four men have received long federal prison sentences for the gang-related 2010 kidnapping and murder of a 19-year-old Lansing woman who was fatally shot in a car trunk outside her home.

The four were convicted last August in Grand Rapids federal court and sentenced this week.

The longest sentence of life in prison for premeditated murder went to 36-year-old Charles Lewis Sr., who authorities say fired the rifle shots that killed Shayla Johnson.

Twenty-six-year-old Mustafa Al-Din was sentenced to 50 years, his 25-year-old brother Walee Al-Din to 60 years and 24-year-old Raphael Crenshaw to 47 and a half years in prison.

Prosecutors say they were tied to the "Block Burners" gang and wanted to kidnap Johnson to force her boyfriend to turn over cash and drugs.

Four others were sentenced earlier.
