COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) – One of the youngest girls to ever be charged with murder in adult court in Kentucky has accepted a 15-year sentence. Emily Ball, 16, pleaded guilty to 1st degree conspiracy to commit assault, Unlawful Imprisonment, and Tampering with Physical Evidence. Her final sentencing is scheduled for February 28th at 1:30 p.m.

Ball was 14 when she was originally charged with murder, kidnapping and tampering with physical evidence in the death of 17-year-old Travis White. White was lured to a house on Madison Avenue in Covington where police say he was beaten and stabbed to death by a group of people in March of 2009.

In August, Kasey Dodson and Brian Golsby were convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the murder of White. Dodson and Golsby claimed to be vampires.

Dale Lamont Eastman and David Thompson, both of Covington, and Amber Goerler were charged with Tampering with Physical Evidence in this case.
