Yvonne Moss Sentenced To Three Years Imprisonment
An Arapahoe woman on Tuesday was sentenced to 37 months in prison for one count of assault resulting in serious bodily injury that caused the death of her boyfriend in October, according to federal court records.
Yvonne Moss had pleaded guilty to the charge on Jan. 15 before U.S. District Court Judge Scott Skavdahl in a deal worked out with prosecutors and her defense attorney.
Depending on the judge’s review of the presentence investigation, she could have been sentenced to either 34 or 37 months.
After imprisonment, Skavdahl ordered Moss to be on supervised release for three years, receive treatment for mind-altering substances including alcohol, attend an offender rehabilitation program, complete a mental health treatment program, and pay court costs.
Moss, an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe, was arrested after Clarence Tyler was found dead in their residence in Arapahoe on Oct. 11.
Moss’s brother, who lived with them, told investigators that his sister and Tyler got along well when they weren’t drinking.
But that night, they were drunk and arguing.
Moss’s brother heard Tyler falling through a door and saw Moss repeatedly kick him.
An autopsy determined Tyler suffered a massive hemorrhage in the brain and severe bruising.
