COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - A Covington woman was formally sentenced Monday for her role in a murder and robbery.

Judge Gregory Bartlett followed the jury's recommendation and sentenced Samantha Mayse, 22, to life in prison without parole for 25 years.

A Kenton County Jury found Mayse guilty of murdering Shawn Davis, 28, by using the promise of three-way sex to lure him to a Covington apartment in a robbery attempt two years ago. Davis' body was later found buried underneath a bridge in Campbell County.

Three co-defendants in the case have pled guilty.
