FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - A Marion County woman will spend at least two years in prison after being convicted on charges related to her father’s slaying.

Media outlets report that Kristyn Palmer entered an Alford plea on Friday to forgery, uttering and conspiracy to commit a felony. A first-degree murder charge was dismissed.

An Alford plea acknowledges the state has sufficient evidence to prosecute but is not an admission of guilt.

A Marion County judge sentenced Palmer to one to five years for conspiracy and one to 10 years each for forgery and uttering charge. The forgery and uttering sentences are concurrent.

The charges stem from the 2011 death of Palmer’s father, Everett Wilson, at her home in Baxter.

Palmer’s husband, Michael Palmer, was convicted of first-degree murder in May.
