Woman Given Life In Prison For Murder Resentenced

Woman Given Life In Prison For Murder Resentenced
WATERTOWN, SD -

A South Dakota state prison inmate from Watertown who was given a life sentence when she was a teenager has been resentenced to 40 years in prison.

Jessi Owens was 17 when she pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the 1998 hammer beating death of David Bauman. Authorities say Owens and another teen went to Bauman's house to steal money.

Owens appealed her sentenced last year following a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court decision that said that mandatory life-without-parole sentences for juvenile homicide offenders violates the Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

Judge Robert Timm in Codington County resentenced Owens on Wednesday. She will be eligible for parole in three to four years.

Owens is serving her sentence at the South Dakota Women's Prison in Pierre.
