A jury convicted a brother and sister today in a fatal shooting and robbery last year in Lakewood.

Corey Trosclair, 42, and Kisha L. Fisher, 38, were found guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of Lenard Masten, 39.

Pierce County prosecutors said Trosclair and codefendant Mario M. Steele, 35, attacked Masten on Jan. 16, 2011, in an attempt to rob him. Masten died after being shot during the confrontation.

Fisher, Steele’s live-in girlfriend, called Masten to set up a meeting, court records show. Steele told detectives Fisher suggested the men rob Masten, who she used to date, according to prosecutors. She was also mad at Masten, because he spread rumors about her being a prostitute, and she knew he was a drug dealer, prosecutors wrote.

Trosclair faces more than 30 years in prison, and Fischer more than 25. They will be sentenced Aug. 24.

Steele’s trial is scheduled for January.

  1. As a child you are taught right from wrong. When you do wrong there are consequences. Therefore as an adult the consequences can be severe. When you take another human being’s life you should realize you have done the ultimate wrong. At the same time you are hurting everyone in your life that loves you: your parents, your children, your siblings and maybe some very good friends. Now you have possibly the rest of your life to think about that persons loved ones: his parents, his children, his grandchildren, his siblings and a host of very dedicated friends that will never be able to speak to him or see him again. How would you honestly feel if the situation were reversed or even if it were your loved one?
