COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A court has ordered a shorter sentence for an Idaho woman who admitted to helping a Colorado rancher cover up the killing of his fiancee.

The Colorado Court of Appeals overturned the three-year prison sentence for Krystal Kenney on Thursday after finding that her punishment should not have fallen within the aggravated range for evidence tampering. The court told a judge to resentence her within the normal range of 1 to 1 1½ years.

Kenney was the main witness to testify against Patrick Frazee, with whom she had an on-again and off-again relationship. He was convicted of killing Kelsey Berreth.
