2 sentenced to 20 years for shooting pizza delivery woman

Two men who planned and orchestrated the Feb. 11 robbery of a pizza delivery woman in which she was shot twice were both sentenced in Lucas County Common Pleas Court Tuesday to 20 years in prison.

Henry O. Johnson, Jr., 28, of 127 West Park St. and Aaron McDonald, 21, of 510 Euclid Ave had each previously pleaded no contest to one count each of attempted murder, felonious assault, and aggravated robbery, each with a gun specification.

Judge James Bates sentenced both men to nine years in prison for the attempted murder, eight years for the felonious assault, and eight years for the aggravated robbery. Because the assault and attempted murder charges merge, Judge Bates ordered the two sentences to be served concurrently but consecutive to the robbery charge. He then added the mandatory three years for the gun specifications.

Authorities said the two men called in a pizza delivery order Feb. 11 to the Marco's Pizza at 149 Main St., where Rebecca Keasler of Oregon worked. They asked that the pizza be delivered to 416 Potter St., which was a vacant house.

When she knocked on the door about 9:20 p.m., the suspects grabbed her and dragged her inside. She was shot twice, once in the abdomen, once in the back.

The men left with her money pouch containing $20, he added.

Both men denied being the one who shot the gun.
