MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Sentencing has been delayed for a Minot woman accused of helping with the murder of her husband’s ex-wife.

Cynthia Wilder was to be sentenced March 29, but the state needs more time to complete a pre-sentence investigation. The Minot Daily News reports a new sentencing date hasn’t been set.

Authorities say Cynthia Wilder helped clean blood evidence from a car after Richie Wilder Jr. killed his ex-wife, Angila Wilder, in November 2015. Richie Wilder was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Cynthia Wilder also was accused of trying to help Richie Wilder in an aborted escape attempt from the Ward County Jail.

She entered an Alford plea in November. That means she acknowledges there’s enough evidence to convict her. The court treats it like a guilty plea.
