Hudson Murder Suspect Pleads Guilty
One of the five people accused in the murder of a Hudson couple last year has pleaded guilty in a deal that will force her to testify against the other defendants.
The bodies of Eric Likes and Elva Quiver were found inside their torched trailer home in Hudson last November. Authorities say the five people involved started the fire to cover up the killings.
21 year old Samantha Hanway has pleaded guilty to two counts of aiding and abetting of second degree murder. The others allegedly involved include her husband, her brother and her cousin.
The Fremont county judge will likely accept the plea deal, but wants to review the pre-sentencing report before officially signing off on it. Without the deal, Hanway could face up to 50 years in prison.
