2 Women Sentenced in Beating of Girl at Party

May 03, 2005

Two women received maximum prison sentences in Baltimore for their roles in the beating of a 12-year-old girl at a birthday party, an attack prompted by a kiss on the cheek from a boy acting on a dare.

Monique Baldwin, 37, was sentenced to 30 years. She had pleaded guilty in March to first-degree assault and second-degree child abuse for instigating other children at the party to beat Nicole Townes, who went into a three-week coma after the attack.

Kenya Keene, 25, received a six-year sentence after pleading guilty to reckless endangerment and second-degree assault charges for participating in the attack.
