JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky. (AP) - A jury in eastern Kentucky has recommended the maximum sentence in the case of a triple murder committed in 2014.

WYMT Mountain News reports (https://bit.ly/2qk4OSB ) a jury in Johnson County on Wednesday recommended life without parole for a woman who was found guilty in the murders of three Martin County residents.

Investigators say Tina Goble, Cannie Johnson Jr. and 8-year-old Trinity Maynard were shot and stabbed by Amanda Bowen and her boyfriend Jack Smith, before they also set the victims’ home on fire.

Prosecutors say Bowen had denied involvement but later admitted to planning the crimes with her boyfriend, who is facing three life-sentences without parole.

Bowen on Monday was found guilty of multiple counts of murder, robbery and tampering with evidence. Her sentencing has been scheduled for May 19.
