Cherie Lash-Rhoades, the woman convicted of killing four people in a mass shooting in Alturas in 2014, was sentenced to death Monday morning by a Modoc County judge.
The judge sentenced Lash-Rhoades to death for the four people she murdered and 150 years to life for the attempted murder cases and special allegations. Lash-Rhoades will not be eligible for custody credits. The judge also ordered that Cherie Lash-Rhoades pay $64,000 in restitution.
Lash-Rhoades was found guilty in December of 2016 on four counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder. The jury recommended the death penalty. According to Modoc County District Attorney Jordan Funk, this is the first death penalty case he knows of in Modoc County.
Lash-Rhoades shot six people at the Cedarville Rancheria Tribal Office in Alturas, ultimately killing four on February 20, 2014. Officials said at least one of the injured was also attacked with a butcher knife after Lash-Rhoades ran out of ammunition.

Police said when they arrived, Lash-Rhoades was outside the building, running with a knife in her hands, but was quickly subdued.
