Brittany Nicole Harper, 32, of Joplin was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to robbery, home invasion and other charges. The four-state crime spree started in Webb City on January 26th of last year.
Authorities say Harper and her then boyfriend, Blake Fitzgerald, stole a Cadillac during a test drive, later carjacked victims at gunpoint in Alabama and Georgia and were involved in a home invasion.
10 days later, on February 5th, Fitzgerald was killed during a shootout with police in Milton, Florida and Harper was arrested. She will now face more charges in other states.
