16-year-old Jeremy Lee charged as adult in Amanda Lynn Benton’s murder. Amanda Lynn Benton was reported missing Sept. 28, 2016. She was found dead two days later in a vacant home on Vanderbilt Street near West End Street in Southwest Detroit. Lee was sentenced Monday morning by Judge Thomas Cameron. “This was a senseless and brutal murder where you assaulted and strangled a pregnant woman, threw her in the trunk of a car. You took her to an abandoned building and you set her on fire — her and her unborn child,” said Cameron before he handed down the sentencing.
