VALE — One of the four co-defendants facing charges related to a May 2018 homicide will be spending five years in prison after a Wednesday sentencing.
Sarah Renee Carter was sentenced to 60 months in prison for the charge of hindering prosecution, according to Malheur County District Attorney Dave Goldthorpe.
Carter originally pleaded guilty to her charges on Dec. 12. She is the second of the four co-defendants connected to the crime to face their sentencing.
Ryan Macias, who entered a guilty plea for conspiracy to commit murder on Nov. 2, was sentenced by Judge Erin Landis to 110-months on Feb. 11. Along with that is 36 months post-prison supervision.
Sean Christopher Prokop is the only co-defendant left to enter a plea on the crime. His plea hearing has been set for March 19 at 8:15 a.m. The court did preliminarily schedule a jury trial to start on Dec. 5, which is alongside one already slated for another of his co-defendants, Mathew Thomas Jaggi.
Jaggi appeared before Judge Hung Jan. 8 and entered a plea of not guilty to charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, aiding and abetting murder and hindering prosecution, as well as unlawful possession of a destructive device.
Prokop, Macias and Carter, all of Ontario, along with Jaggi, of Roswell, Idaho were all originally indicted on charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, aiding and abetting murder and hindering prosecution, as well as unlawful possession of a destructive device.
The homicide occurred May 9, 2018, when Payette resident Douglas Madrid, formerly of Nyssa, was shot in the head with a shotgun from close range.
