CLEVELAND — Tamara McLoyd, the 19-year-old woman who killed Cleveland police officer Shane Bartek was back in court this afternoon for a new sentencing.

3News streamed the court proceedings live inside this story, which can be watched below in this story.

McLoyd was resentenced after a mistake was made last week regarding serving sentences consecutively on a firearm charge.

The resentencing comes just days after McLoyd was originally sentenced in the case last week.

“Having now more thoroughly considered and examined the statutory provisions and case law, the court concludes that, under the circumstances of these cases and for the reasons explained below (see the court document below), The State of Ohio is correct and concurrent sentences for the firearm specifications are impermissible and a new sentencing hearing is therefore necessary," court records show.

Here’s the court document regarding her resentencing:

McLoyd, who was found guilty in August for Bartek's death, was also convicted of multiple robberies.

McLoyd has been in custody since her arrest in the New Year’s Eve shooting death of officer Bartek. The 25-year-old officer was shot in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 4300 block of Rocky River Drive around 6 p.m. on Dec. 31. He was a two-year veteran with the Cleveland Police Department.

He was laid to rest at Holy Cross Cemetery in January.
