The plan was devised by Powell himself and reportedly he shared onus for his death. She has been sentenced to two years on a drug conspiracy charge. Besides this term, the judge also ordered that she has to complete three years of post-release supervision and partake in drug and mental health programs.
As per reports, Powell was serving a life sentence for the crime of murder. He had stabbed his mother in law to death. “Now, because of the choices that were made, I no longer can pick up the phone and hear his voice, I can’t go on a visit and see his big cheesy smile and get the best hug in the world,” Powell’s friend said in a victim impact statement. If you are thinking what led her do such fearless act then it was revealed by an attorney that Blair highly influenced him. “It was a very Svengali-type situation where he had total control over her life,” her attorney said. “She had to do whatever he said.”
