Cherie Lash-Rhoades, the woman convicted of killing four people in a mass shooting in Alturas in 2014, was sentenced to death Monday morning by a Modoc County judge.
The judge sentenced Lash-Rhoades to death for the four people she murdered and 150 years to life for the attempted murder cases and special allegations. Lash-Rhoades will not be eligible for custody credits. The judge also ordered that Lash-Rhoades pay $64,000 in restitution.
Lash-Rhoades was found guilty in December of 2016 on four counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder. The jury recommended the death penalty. According to Modoc County District Attorney Jordan Funk, this is the first death penalty case he knows of in Modoc County.
