FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- 20-year-old Alisha Kizer was handed a 30-year prison sentence with 10 years suspended for the role she played in a fatal 2012 home invasion.
According to court records, Kizer, along with two men, went to the Clinton Street home of 58-year-old Gregory Mitchell in June with the intent of robbing him.
Kizer told investigators while one man held him at gunpoint "Mitchell decided to be a hero" and began to fight back. That is when a struggle began down stairs resulting in gunshots that killed Mitchell. Kizer said she was looking through his home for anything to sell so she could get money.
Kizer told police she knew Mitchell through the community center where he coached and helped her and her sister.
