22-year-old Saraya Atkins was convicted in September of the capital murder of 66-year-old Robert Robert Perry. Atkins apologized to family members and quoted scripture after her sentence was handed down, adding that she wished she could have died instead of Perry. Atkins was supposed to be sentenced last month, but Judge Michael Youngpeter wanted to wait to consider a motion for acquittal citing lack of evidence that Atkins meant to kill Perry. Investigators say Atkins and another woman, Kymberli Lindsay, saw the victim cash a large check at WalMart and followed him home, where they robbed and murdered him. In September, a jury recommended the death penalty.
