Judge Denies Reduced Sentence in Wyoming Homicide
POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — A judge has denied a request for a reduced sentence from a woman who is serving 10 to 18 years for aiding and abetting manslaughter in the death of her husband. His body, missing its head and hands, was found in northwestern Wyoming in early 2014.
Sandra Garcia, 29, requested a sentence reduction in June, saying she had completed a high school equivalency program, taken anger management classes and was participating in counseling.
Park County officials argued her sentence was part of a plea agreement in which she agreed not to seek a sentence reduction.
District Judge Bill Simpson denied Garcia's request, saying the sentence was reasonable.
Garcia acknowledged bringing 30-year-old Juan Antonio Guerra-Torres to a highway pullout where a family friend killed him.
