Teen gets 150-year term in double slaying

ANDERSON – A teenager has been sentenced to 150 years in prison for his role in the shooting deaths of a central Indiana couple.

A Madison County judge sentenced 18-year Martez Brown during a court hearing Monday for the November 2010 slayings of 25-year-old Stephen Streeter and his 24-year-old girlfriend Keya Prince.

Two others have received similar sentences for killing the couple during a robbery in Prince’s Anderson home.

The Herald Bulletin reported (http://bit.ly/SaVPwC) Brown has a history of property-related crimes since age 12. Prosecutors said the three defendants took $7,000, marijuana, a video game console and a television in the robbery, and then went on a shopping spree.

Judge David Happe said he considered Brown’s lack of remorse and cooperation in setting the sentence.

Brown said he planned to appeal.
