The woman found guilty of killing a 17 year-old girl has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.

The sentence for 21 year-old Alexis Willocks includes five years suspended and 200 days of jail credit.

Willocks was found guilty, earlier this year, for the November 2021 death of Anika Henderson. The two had been in a feud over a boy.

Willocks plans to appeal the sentence, and still claims that she is innocent.

Below is the full breakout of Willocks sentence from the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office:

The Honorable Elizabeth C. Hurley sentenced Alexis Elizabeth Willocks, 21, of South Bend to 50 years for the Nov. 8, 2021, Murder of Anika Marie Henderson, 17, of South Bend.

On March 29, 2023, a jury found Ms. Willocks guilty of Murder and Criminal Recklessness, a level 5 felony.

Judge Hurley sentenced Ms. Willocks to 50 years for Murder. Five years of the sentence was suspended and ordered served on probation after the completion of the term of incarceration. Under current Indiana law, a defendant must serve at least 75% of their sentence. Due to double-jeopardy concerns, neither a conviction nor a corresponding sentence was entered for Criminal Recklessness.
