Woman gets 10-year sentence for role in fatal Buffalo robbery

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A woman who admitted to robbery during a fatal double shooting in Buffalo was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Sharee Bailey took part in a robbery on Merrimac Street that resulted in the deaths of both Shaquiel St. John, 26, and Bethany Malloy, 21 on Sep. 27, 2019. She pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree robbery.

Last month, the men accused of killing them, Ernest Green and Wayne Robbins, were sentenced to spend the rest of their lives in prison. Green was also sentenced for killing 31-year-old Danielle Cretacci in her Town of Tonawanda home approximately one month before the murders of St. John and Malloy. Daniel Rodriguez was also sentenced to 75 years to life in prison his role in Cretacci’s murder.

Although Bailey had been indicted in relation to Cretacci’s murder, the Erie County District Attorney’s office says she only pleaded guilty to the robbery on Merrimac.

“She was offered a plea agreement in exchange for her testimony at trial,” the DA’s office told News 4 WIVB.

Prosecutors added that she did not testify against Rodriguez and her testimony was that she met Green after Cretacci’s murder. This was corroborated by phone records and other interviews.

Bailey, who was in custody before her sentencing, had been facing up to 25 years in prison. In addition to the lighter prison sentence, Bailey will spend five years under post-release supervision.
