Central Ohio woman sentenced for aiding convicted murderer

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio woman was sentenced to serve more than three years in prison for helping a friend evade law enforcement after he killed his girlfriend and mother last year.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2aezzCC ) 30-year-old Ashli Price was sentenced Friday in Knox County Common Pleas Court on charges of obstructing justice and aggravated possession of drugs. The drug charges stem from when her daughter, born in May, was found to have oxycodone in her blood.

Prosecutors say Price helped her friend Travis Bonham elude police after he murdered his mother, Sandra Stelk, and girlfriend, Jaime Barber, on Sept. 29 in Mount Vernon.

Bonham was found Oct. 4 near Utica in a minivan driven by Price. He claimed to be high on bath salts and other drugs at the time.
