AKRON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio teenager has been sentenced to life in prison in a deadly plot to lure men desperate for work with phony Craigslist job offers.

The judge sentenced 17-year-old Brogan Rafferty on Friday in Akron on his conviction for aggravated murder and attempted murder. Three men were killed and a fourth victim was shot but survived.

The sentencing was delayed from Monday amid talks on a deal for leniency in return for Rafferty's testimony against the alleged triggerman.

The jury rejected the defense claim that Rafferty feared for his life if he didn't cooperate with co-defendant Richard Beasley.

The 53-year-old Beasley has pleaded not guilty and will be tried in January.
