SPOKANE, Wash. -- People who lived near a woman who was stabbed to death in September 2012 said the 10 year sentence the suspect received is not enough.
Avondre Graham, 18, pleaded guilty to Second-Degree Murder in the death of Sharlotte McGill. A judge sentenced him to 123 months (ten years) in prison. McGill was stabbed in broad daylight while walking her dog along Tuffy's Trail along the Spokane River in September 2012.

Graham and McGill both lived in the Riverpark Apartment Complex in east Spokane. The manager, Kim Campbell, said Graham was just an “ordinary guy” but he appeared to have a temper occasionally. Campbell thinks the 10 year sentence Graham received is not enough.
“Well, the lady that was involved, she doesn’t have 10 years to do anything. So I don’t’ think that’s enough, but hopefully he will change during that period of time,” said Campbell.

A man who lived close to McGill said he thinks Graham was competent enough to know what he was doing. He said he lived next to both Graham and McGill.
“I really don’t care if he gets help or not. I care about the victim,” said Carlos Grantstrom.
Grantstrom said the apartment complex is a great place to live. He said after the murder, everyone in the complex was paranoid and was constantly looking over their shoulder.
