Theresa Petto Sentenced To Life In Prison for 2015 Portage Murder
A murder case in Kalamazoo has come to a close, a year after the crime occurred.
Petto, of Hastings, pleaded guilty in September to the crime, but said that the shooting was the result of mental illness. She says that in the time leading up to the attack, she had been attempting to receive mental health treatment and was denied.
Prosecutors say that Petto shot Drafta, because Drafta had been dating Petto’s ex-boyfriend.
