LONG BEACH — A Superior Court judge has sentenced a 33-year-old man to 20 years to life for the May, 1983, shotgun murder of Long Beach City College student Lise Singrin.
Arthur Jacobs was sentenced Oct. 10 by Judge D. Sterry Fagan for the murder of Singrin and the beating of her mother, Jean.
Testimony showed Jacobs was the accomplice of the trigger man, Thomas Owen, who was sentenced to a 21-years-to-life term last month. Owen, 27, and Jacobs were convicted Aug. 5 of first degree murder and assault, as well as firearm charges.
The convictions hinged on testimony given by Jean Singrin, who survived a fierce beating. She said during the trial that the face of Owen and voice of Jacobs were "etched" in her memory.
