Jury sentences Hereford teen to 45 years in prison

Hereford, TX - A 17 year old convicted in the murder of her own grandmother will spend the next 45 years in prison.

A Deaf Smith County jury convicted Sygourney Grajeda Thursday and sentenced her Friday for killing 74-year-old Lucia Guajardo in her Hereford home last year.

Guajardo lived long enough to call 9-1-1 and say she had been stabbed.

The district attorney says, still, no one knows a motive, but says evidence suggested Grajeda was angry at her grandmother and wanted to steal money from her.

Grajeda's alleged accomplice, Damien Rodriguez, will go on trial later this year.
