GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to his role in a Pierce woman’s death has been sentenced to three years in prison.

The Greeley Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/oWk8LY ) 19-year-old Chad Iler pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder and being an accessory to a crime. He was sentenced Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Iler did not hit or stab 34-year-old Tera Lewandowski, but he watched and didn’t stop the late-September killing. He also helped carry her body out of the room where she was killed.

Iler is the first of six people to be sentenced in connection with the death, which investigators say stemmed from an argument over drugs. One of the defendants is a former Pierce Town Board member, who investigators say told them he killed Lewandowski after a hit was approved by his biker gang leader.
