The shooter in a 2013 murder for hire of a Chester grandmother was sentenced to 30 years in prison Thursday, prosecutors said.

Shaiderius Cohen, 22, pleaded guilty last month in the plot by Clayton Eli Watts to have Watts’ grandmother killed because she was too strict. Cohen was recruited by a third man, Marqueas Buchanan, to kill Jimmie Paul, 59, and her husband for $10,000.

Watts, 19, and Buchanan, 20, were sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty.
