Teen Gets 60 Years In ‘Yummy’ Killing

A teenager was sentenced Tuesday to 60 years in prison for shooting to death an 11-year-old fellow gang member who was wanted by police for the killing of a neighborhood girl.

Cragg Hardaway, 18, was convicted Feb. 28 of first-degree murder for the killing of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer. Prosecutors said he lured Robert to a desolate underpass on the city’s South Side and shot him three times.

Hardaway’s 16-year-old brother, Derrick, is serving a 45-year sentence for his part in the 1994 killing.
