Second Suspect in Grisly 2006 Champaign Murders Sentenced to Life

Two life sentences await one of the three suspects in a grisly double murder in Champaign three years ago.

A Champaign County judge yesterday sentenced 32 year old Crystal Myrick, who along with her ex boyfriend Sean Kelly beat and stabbed Jeremiah and Sue Haigh in the Haigh family's home in the summer of 2006. Kelly pleaded guilty to Jeremiah Haigh's death last year and is serving a 50 year sentence. Myrick's uncle Russell Pitcher is also charged in the case and is awaiting trial. Testimony showed the couple were killed in the course of a robbery.
