A Sikeston woman was sentenced to five years probation for her involvement in a robbery that is alleged to have led indirectly to the March 31 shooting death of Airious Darling in Cape Girardeau. 19-year old Maishael A. Miles received an eight-year suspended sentence for second-degree robbery. She pleaded guilty Oct. 24. Part of the conditions for her probation will be to submit to regular blood and urine tests for drugs and alcohol. Corey Gilbert testified during a preliminary hearing he was drinking and smoking marijuana with Miles in early January at his house on Locust Street. Miles left and returned to the house with three men who hit him with a bottle, stole the marijuana and money and left the scene in Miles’ vehicle. About a month later, he recognized 19-year old Tavious Tipler, of Cape Girardeau from the robbery after seeing him on the street. Witnesses say Tipler later shot and killed 28-year old Darling, 28, of Cape Girardeau, who was returning Gilbert’s 1-year-old daughter from babysitting in a mistaken identity. Tipler told police Miles was the mastermind of the robbery. Another man involved in the robbery, 18-year old Ce’one K. Tidwell, 18, of Cape Girardeau, received the same sentence as Miles. Judge Benjamin Lewis said he could give Miles a harsher sentence, considering Tidwell also received probation, and he was one of the three men who beat up Gilbert.
