A judge sentenced Chearie Edwards to 47 years in jail after she pleaded guilty to robbing and killing two brothers in January.

Court records show Edwards and her boyfriend, Deandre Dunnaway, admitted to killing their manager, Alphonso White, at Rally's Restaurant in January.

Dunnaway was sentenced to two life terms for capital murder.

He avoided the death penalty with a plea agreement.
