In 2011, Eddie Doh was arrested for his role in the murder of 17-year-old Aerial Patterson. Doh was said to have used Facebook to lure the runaway from Warren, Ohio to Charlotte, North Carolina where Doh and cohort Nicholas Wright robbed and killed Aerial Patterson.
After pleading guilty to accessory after the fact, Doh was sentenced to 87-114 months in prison. He served 89 months before being released in January 2019. Apparently, it didn’t take Doh long before going back to his violent ways.
In July 2019, Doh tried to rob a Steak ‘n Shake in Charlotte and shot and killed employee Darnell Harris, 48. Last week, Doh pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and assault with a firearm on a law enforcement officer. Doh exchanged gunfire with police at the Steak ‘n Shake. Doh has been sentenced to 360-444 months in prison essentially keeping him behind bars for at least 30 years, in theory.
How does someone only get less than ten years in prison for playing part in the murder of a 17-year-old girl? I realize that deals sometimes need to made in order to secure a conviction or guilty plea, but who was served by allowing a violent murderer to walk free once again? The murder of a 17-year-old girl should carry much more weight than what Doh received.
