Thirty-two-year-old Amie Lee Ryburn of Pittsburg was sentenced Monday in Crawford County District Court for second-degree murder and manufacture of methamphetamine in the death of 29-year-old Ian Monaghan.
Monaghan’s body was discovered in a farm field west of Pittsburg in July 2010. He had been beaten and shot multiple times.
Investigators stopped Ryburn and Charles F. Mitchell later that night in a truck that contained a meth lab.
The Joplin Globe reports investigators seized another meth lab at a trailer park outside Pittsburg connected to the case.
Mitchell has pleaded innocent to first-degree murder. A third man was charged with obstruction.
