23 years to life for teen's murder in Franklin

FRANKLIN, Ohio (WKRC) -- One of the three men who beat a teenager to death is sentenced to nearly three decades behind bars Friday.

Michael Watson was found guilty of murder, kidnapping, aggravated robbery and tampering with evidence. He was cleared of a rape charge. The judge then sentenced him to 23 years to life in prison.

Michael Geldrich and Adam Patrick already pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the death of 16-year-old Dione Payne. Watson and Geldrich beat Payne at a home in Franklin last November after robbing him of heroin and money. They dropped off Payne at Atrium Medical Center, where he died.

Patrick helped plan the crime and let the other two use his truck.
