Natavia Lowery, the former assistant of murdered [lastfm]Ramones[/lastfm] manager Linda Stein, was sentenced this week to 27-years-to-life in prison for killing her former boss.
A judge in the case called Lowery “almost inhuman” for the October 2007 murder of Stein, whom the prosecution claims was clubbed to death by Lowery with a piece of exercise equipment in her Manhattan apartment. Lowery was allegedly motivated to kill Stein after Stein discovered that Lowery had stolen $30,000 from her.
Stein’s daughters, Samantha and Mandy Stein, spoke at the sentencing and requested that the judge give Lowery the maximum sentence possible for the crime.
According to reports, the 28-year-old plans to appeal the sentence.
