US Teen Sentenced to 30 Years for Torture Death

Edwardsville (Illinois), Apr 16 (AP/PTI) A teenager has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for his role in the 2008 torture killing of a pregnant, developmentally impaired mother who police say died after weeks of systematic scaldings, beatings, burns from a glue gun and being used as target practise with a BB gun.

Benny Wilson, 19, twice declined to address the judge as the last of six defendants sentenced in Dorothy Dixon's death, which police say Wilson admitted contributing to by routinely shooting her with BBs "playing around."

At least once when he ran out of BBs, an investigator testified yesterday, Wilson used a knife to dig the ammunition out of Dixon's flesh and fired them off at Dixon again.
