An Ohio teenager has been sentenced to life in prison in a deadly plot to lure men desperate for work with phony craigslist job offers in Noble County.  The Judge sentenced 17-year-old Brogan Rafferty on Friday in Akron on his conviction for aggravated murder and attempted murder.  Three men were killed and a fourth victim was shot but survived.  The sentencing was delayed from Monday amid talks on a deal for leniency in return for Rafferty’s testimony against the alleged triggerman.  The jury rejected the defense claim that Rafferty fear for his life if he didn’t cooperate with co-defendant Richard Beasley.  The 53-year-old Beasley has pleaded not guilty and will be tried in January.
