BOWLING GREEN, Mo. (WGEM) -

The Frankford woman who admitted to getting rid of evidence connected to a murder trial was sentenced to four years in prison Monday in Bowling Green.

According to court records, Rebecca Kirk was given two four-year sentences that will run concurrently. Kirk pled guilty in August to two counts of tampering with physical evidence in a felony prosecution.

Kirk was accused disposing of the gun and ammunition used by Duane Pettey in the 2010 murder of his fiance Sandra Fugate. She also burned the clothing worn by Pettey when he committed the crime.

Kirk pled not guilty to the charges in March.

Pettey is serving a life sentence in prison after he was convicted of murder in June of 2012.
