Saginaw judge gives 3 men prison for murder in shooting of girl, 17, at pre-prom party


SAGINAW, Michigan — A judge has sentenced three men to long prison terms for the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old girl at a pre-prom party in Saginaw.

A jury convicted the men in June for the May 23, 2013, killing of Tonquinisha McKinley. Authorities say she was shot during a gang confrontation at a party before a Saginaw High School prom.

Saginaw County Circuit Judge Fred Borchard has issued the second-degree sentences for 25-year-old Isaiah D. Clark, 19-year-old Karon D. Thomas and 21-year-old Evellis T. McGee.

The judge sentenced Clark on Thursday to 60-90 years, Thomas on Wednesday to life in prison and McGee on Monday to 36 to 60 years.

All three men also get an additional two years in prison for having firearms while committing a felony.
