COVINGTON, Ky. - One year after beginning a 15-year sentence for her role in a Covington murder, a Kentucky teen was granted probation Thursday.
Kenton County Judge Martin Sheehan granted Emily Ball probation for the 2009 death of Travis White.
The probation is not without out restriction as Ball must maintain employment, attend group therapy, abstain from premarital sex for 18 months and use contraceptives.
In March 2009, 17-year-old Travis White was lured to a home on Shaler Street in Covington by the then 14-year-old Ball, court records indicate. Waiting at the home was 28-year-old Brian Golsby and 22-year-old Kasey Dodson.
The pair stabbed and beat White to death. The detective in the case said a baseball bat, a hammer and a 2-inch pipe wrench were used on White, who suffered 41 cuts and stabs and 31 bruises.
Both Golsby and Dodson claimed to be vampires at the time of the murder. The pair was sentenced to life in prison plus five years.
