Rapper's ex-girlfriend jailed for fatal NJ robbery

HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - September 5, 2009 Gina Conway was sentenced Friday, one day after Max B - whose real name is Charly Wingate - was ordered to serve 75 years and his stepbrother, Kelvin Leerdam, received a life term plus 35 years for their roles in the September 2006 robbery in Fort Lee.

The two men were convicted in June of felony murder, armed robbery and other offenses. Prosecutors said they and Conway - who took a plea deal and testified against the pair - plotted to rob two men she had recently met.

Wingate and Leerdam, both from Harlem in New York City, went to the victims' hotel room and demanded money before Leerdam shot one of the men.
