The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that Jennifer Dunnagan Thrasher, 23, was sentenced Monday in 1st District Court.
Thrasher was charged as an accessory to the killing of Michael Wyatt Smith, 19, after telling authorities she helped bury Smith's body in a makeshift grave in a remote area. Police say her now-estranged husband, Austin Blake Thrasher, 20, shot and killed Smith in September 2011 in a romantic rivalry over a 16-year-old girl.
Austin Thrasher faces a first-degree murder charge, but that case is on hold while he's evaluated to determine if he's able to assist in his own defense.
