Perp gets 32 years for CTA hate crime murder

From CBS Chicago…

A teen was sentenced to 32 years in prison Friday after admitting he pushed a woman to her death on a CTA staircase after stealing another commuter’s iPhone, the Sun-Times is reporting.

Sally Katona-King, a 68-year-old church deacon, died from the injuries she suffered when Prince Watson shoved her at the Fullerton L stop on March 28, 2011.

Watson later sold the iPhone for $350 to $400, and was arrested in August that year.

On Friday, Watson, 19, pleaded guilty to murder and robbery charges stemming Katona-King’s death and other incidents before Judge James Linn.
