RIVERTON, Wyo. — One of five people accused in the slayings of a Hudson couple last year has pleaded guilty in a deal requiring her to testify against the other suspects. They include her brother, husband and cousin.
Twenty-one-year-old Samantha June Hanway of Ethete pleaded guilty Thursday in Lander to two counts of aiding and abetting second-degree murder in the deaths of 42-year-old Eric Clinton Likes and 20-year-old Elva Charlotte Quiver. Investigators say they were stabbed on Nov. 15 and that the suspects returned two days later to rob the house and set fire to it to cover up the killings.
The judge was likely to accept the deal but wanted to review a pre-sentencing report first.
Hanway faces a maximum of between 25 and 50 years in prison.
