A Webster County woman will spend up to 50 years in prison for the June 2012 triple murder of Lamar Coates, Denise Coates, and Dustin Brown.

Judge Jack Alsop sentenced Amanda York, 28, to 15 years on each count of voluntary manslaughter and up to five years for one charge of conspiracy to conceal a deceased human body, said Webster County Prosecuting Attorney Dwayne Vandevender.

State Police said York told dispatchers that she shot the victims after they came to a home making threats. However, a 5-year-old child at the home told police that York's husband, Michael York, 44, was the shooter.

York's husband and co-conspirator, Michael York, was sentenced in October to life in prison for his involvement in the triple murder.
