Woman gets 5 years in killing, body-dumping caseOctober 9, 2019
By The Associated Press
KENTLAND — A woman who's one of five people charged in a torture-slaying has been sentenced to five years in prison.
A Newton County judge sentenced 35-year-old Jasmine Parker of Kentland on Monday after she pleaded guilty to assisting a criminal in the March slaying of 30-year-old Nicole L. Bowen.
Police say the West Lafayette woman was choked to death March 30 before her body was dumped in a rural hunting shack.
The Journal & Courier reports that Parker's plea agreement came with a one-year sentence, but she'll also serve another four years for being a habitual offender.
Parker is one of five people who police and prosecutors say were either at her Kentland-area trailer at the time of Bowen's slaying or helped hide her body.
The four others are awaiting trial.
