DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A 23-year-old Leipsic woman has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for helping dispose of her father's body after he was stabbed to death.
Jennifer L. Barnes was sentenced Wednesday and is expected to testify against the father of one of her children, 24-year-old Gerard T. Schweiger, of Felton, who is charged in the death of 45-year-old Tony Mozick Sr.
Barnes faced up to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to tampering with evidence, second-degree conspiracy and other offenses.
Authorities allege that Schweiger fatally stabbed Mozick, then conspired with Barnes to throw the body in the Leipsic River in a 55-gallon container. A trapper later found the body.
Schweiger is charged with first-degree murder, a weapons offense and the same six felony counts to which Barnes pleaded guilty. His trial is scheduled for April.
