Convicted killer wants life sentence reduced
Viewers sound off
Should one of Southwest Florida's most infamous convicted killers have her life sentence reduced? That's what her lawyer is asking for and it's not sitting well with many of you.
Four In Your Corner's Colleen Hogan has your reactions.
The attorney for Ashley Toye isn't giving up after a judge ruled her life sentence will stand. He had been hoping to get Toye's sentence reconsidered after the Supreme Court ruled in June that mandatory life sentences without parole for minors are unconstitutional.
Toye, now 23, was 17 and pregnant at the time of the infamous "Cash Feenz" double murders in 2006.
It was October 2006 when Toye's boyfriend Kemar Johnston was celebrating his 20th birthday at his Cape Coral home. At some point, Alexis Sosa, 18, and his 14-year-old nephew showed up.
The two teens apparently got into an argument with Johnston and were tied up, beaten and brutally tortured.
Toye says Johnston had her use a knife to carve a symbol into one of the victim's backs. Others at the party poured bleach into their wounds before both boys were eventually shot and killed.
While Toye didn't pull the trigger, she was convicted of felony murder because of her role.
Most of you think she got what she deserved.
Julie from Cape Coral: "Just cause she was young and pregnant and she made her wrong decisions does not mean that she should not be able to get out of it."
Jennifer from Cape Coral: "I was a close friend to the Sosas and their death is everyday for us so I believe that the consequence should be everyday for her too."
Pat from Ft. Myers: "I think the girl should have her sentence reduced and not have life without parole."
