Port Angeles woman sentenced for role in killing

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - A Port Angeles woman who watched her boyfriend strangle her friend and helped dispose of the body won't spend any more time behind bars.

A Clallam County Superior Court judge sentenced 27-year-old Kendell K. Huether on Tuesday to 17 months. With credit for the year-and-a-half she has spent in jail and electronic monitoring, she won't have to go to prison.

Huether pleaded guilty to rending criminal assistance in the October 2011 death of Jennifer Pimentel, who was disabled.

The Peninsula Daily News reports ( http://bit.ly/11Oi1zE) Huether also was found guilty of tampering with a witness to throw off investigators.

Her boyfriend at the time, 23-year-old Kevin Bradfield, was sentenced last month to 25 years in prison for murder. Prosecutors say he killed Pimentel to prevent her from accusing him of rape.
