PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) - A woman pleaded guilty Tuesday morning in Pontotoc County to manslaughter.
Krysta Chewe appeared in Circuit Court where a judge sentenced her to 20 years in prison in connection to the 2016 shooting death of Justin Judon, 33.
Judon’s body was found on Feb. 16, 2016, on Owen Bend Road.
Assistant District Attorney Sadie Gardner said the sentencing by Judge John White was ultimately a compromise with the victim’s family.
Chewe could get an extra ten years for any bad behavior. This is because she has a criminal history, Gardner said.
