Woman is sentenced to 18 months for involvement in murder


OKEECHOBEE — Cheyenne Smith was sentenced to one year and six months in state prison after pleading no contest to the charge of accessory after the fact in a murder. Smith was arrested in April 2020 after Tohermain Rosier was found deceased, lying face down on the road on Northeast 14th Avenue.

It was later discovered that Derrick Clay and Cheyenne Smith had gone to Douglas Park to buy marijuana but were unable to buy from their normal dealer and instead contacted someone else. With Smith driving, they entered Douglas Park, met up with Rosier, and Clay got out of the vehicle, stabbed and kicked Rosier before getting back in the vehicle. They left the area but returned a short time later, and Clay went through Rosier’s pockets. The duo left the area again.

Smith claimed not to have known Rosier was dead and thought Clay “just beat his ass.”

Smith left her 2-year-old daughter home alone while they went out to purchase marijuana, because she was sleeping.

Clay was sentenced to life in prison.
