Hatchet Slaying Suspect Sentenced

Updated: Monday, July 7 2014, 10:55 PM CDT
FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) -- A Fort Dodge woman has been sentenced to four years in prison in connection to a hatchet slaying last year.
23-year-old Holly Ekstrom received the sentence Monday. A judge told her he rejected a recommended probation sentence as part of a plea deal because Ekstrom admitted to lying to investigators.
Ekstrom recently pleaded guilty to aggravated misdemeanors in connection with the July 2013 death of 22-year-old Steven Fisher. She said she saw Ronald Dilley kill 22-year-old Steven Fisher. She admitted to driving Dilley away from the scene and disposing of evidence in the case.
Dilley earlier pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the case. He is serving 50 years in prison.Copyright 2014 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.Hatchet Slaying Suspect Sentenced
