SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A woman accused of leaving the body of a shooting victim in a rural Minnehaha County ditch has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Kelsey Roubideaux was sentenced Tuesday for accessory to a felony for helping dispose of the body of Lakendrick Thornton last September. Roubideaux’s testimony was key in the trial of the man accused of killing Thornton. The 23-year-old woman pleaded guilty in March in exchange for her cooperation. Charges of first-degree manslaughter and possession of a controlled substance were dropped.

Henry Little Long was convicted in April of second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter for fatally shooting Thornton.
