A self-styled street preacher who teamed up with a high school students in a deadly plot to lure men with bogus craigslist job offers has been sentenced to death. A judge in Akron sentenced 53-year-old Richard Beasley Thursday. The jury that convicted him recommended last week that he be executed. Beasley was convicted of teaming up with a teenager in 2011 to lure men with offers of farmhand jobs in Noble County. Three men were killed and a four wounded. The co-defendant, then 16 was too young to face the death penalty. Brogan Rafferty was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole on his conviction last year.
