TROY, MO. (WGEM) - The Missouri woman accused of tampering with evidence in the Sandra Fugate murder trial pled guilty to felony charges Monday, according to court records.
Rebecca Kirk, of Frankford, pled guilty to two felony charges of tampering with physical evidence in a felony prosecution during a court appearance in Troy, Mo. Kirk's sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 7 where she'll face up to eight years in prison. She could also be fined up to $10,000.
Kirk was accused of getting rid of the gun and ammunition Duane Pettey used to murder his fiance, Sandra Fugate, back in 2010. She was also accused of burning the clothing Pettey wore when he committed the crime.
Kirk initially pled not guilty to the charges last March.
Pettey was found guilty of murder in June of 2012 and is now serving a life sentence in prison.
