Woman Sentenced In Connection With Minnesota Student’s Death
HASTINGS (AP) - A 26-year-old woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison in connection with the death of a University of Minnesota student.
Ashley Conrade was sentenced Tuesday in Dakota County District Court in the death of Anarae Schunk. She was also given a concurrent one-year sentence in the death of Palagor Jobi. She had earlier pleaded guilty to aiding an offender after the fact.
Authorities say Conrade and Schunk were with Shavelle Chavez-Nelson when he fatally shot Jobi outside a bar in September 2013. The three ended up at Conrade's Rosemount townhouse, where authorities believe Schunk was fatally stabbed. Her body was later found in a roadside ditch in Rice County.
Chavez-Nelson was convicted in Jobi's death and given a life sentence. He pleaded guilty last month to second-degree murder in Schunk's death.
