Two more people were sentenced in Fremont County Thursday afternoon for their roles in the murders of a Hudson couple. Elva Quiver and Eric Likes were killed inside their mobile home in November 2011 before it was set on fire to try and cover up the murders.
Sentences were handed down for Joseph Jenkins and Samantha Hanway. They both pleaded guilty to aiding abetting in the murders as part of plea bargain agreements.
Jenkins was sentenced to 70 years to life in prison, while Hanway received 25-50 years behind bars.
The brother of Eric Likes addressed the court explaining how his brother loved life and would give the shirt off his back to help someone out. Fremont County deputy attorney Pat Leburn echoed that statement. The aunt of Elva Quiver spoke on behalf of her family saying that Elva was like a daughter to her.
Hanway told the court how sorry she was for her involvement. Jenkins, meanwhile, asked that no one speak on his behalf, but did sumbit a letter expressing how sorry he was and that nothing he could ever say would undo his actions.
Laziur Hanway was previously sentenced to life in prison for his part in the crime.
Jude Blackburn, the fourth person allegedly involved, was a juvenile when the murders happened and is still awaiting trial.
