Woman gets 20-40 years for Omaha slaying

February 15, 2019

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A woman has been imprisoned for killing a man whose body was found in a vehicle in an Omaha police station parking lot.

Douglas County District Court records say 19-year-old Tyjanae Allen was given 20 to 40 years Wednesday. She’d pleaded no contest to second-degree murder after prosecutors lowered the charge and dropped another.

Prosecutors say Allen and 29-year-old Julio Cesar-Ortega arranged to meet for sex on Nov. 8, 2017, but Allen stabbed him and then robbed him of $100. Cesar-Ortega died after driving himself to the station in northeast Omaha .

A man accused of helping Allen is scheduled to be sentenced March 13. Court records say 20-year-old Govenor Tate pleaded guilty to conspiracy and to use of a weapon.
