EVANSTON, Wyo. — The killer of an Evanston woman who died in 2006 was sentenced to eight to 16 years in prison Friday, authorities said.
Lee Allen Michaels — whose real name is Edwin Lee Norton — was arrested in Houston in April on first-degree murder charges in the death of 41-year-old Shannon Bohannon of Evanston.
Michaels had pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced during a hearing in Uinta County District Court.
Bohannon's plastic-wrapped body was found by a hiker on June 11, 2006, on public lands north of Evanston. An autopsy revealed no obvious cause of death.
Investigators determined that Bohannon had been living with Michaels, a drifter and self-employed window washer at the time.
