Killer Of Kayla Mueller Sentenced To Life In Prison Last Week

The terrorist who was found guilty in April for killing Prescott’s Kayla Mueller, and other American hostages, was sentenced to life in prison on Friday in Alexandria, Virginia. El Shafee Elsheikh, also known one of the ISIS Beatles, was found guilty along with two others, for killing Mueller and other hostages James Foley, Steven Sotloff and Peter Kassig. All but Mueller were beheaded. The life sentence was just a formality after they were found guilty and the U.S. agreed not to pursue the death penalty as part of a deal that ensured extradition of Elsheikh and one of the other terrorists. Mueller was killed in 2015. She attended Tri-City College Prep and was a 2009 graduate of NAU.
