A woman was sentenced to 50 years in prison Thursday for her role in the 2017 death of a Rockdale woman.
Candice Nicole Jones, 32, of Rockdale pleaded guilty in April to the a first-degree felony murder charge.
She was one of four people charged after Emily Hacker’s body was found in a shallow grave in Burleson County eight days after she went missing in January 2017.
Edward Bannon Barry, 32, of Caldwell, has also pleaded guilty.
In February 2017, a Milam County grand jury indicted Jones, Berry, Ashley Yvonne Wesson-Zawadzke and John Wayne Stewart, both of Somerville.
A fifth person, Kevin Cormier, 30, of Caldwell was charged in the investigation with tampering with physical evidence of a corpse.
According to a preliminary autopsy report, Hacker had been killed by blunt force trauma.
