A woman will spend two years on probation for helping a western Pennsylvania fugitive in the days before he fatally shot a police officer.
The (Tarentum) Valley News Dispatch reports 25-year-old Amanda Walters, of Lower Burrell, was sentenced Monday.
Walters and her 39-year-old aunt, Nicole Walters, pleaded guilty in March to helping 33-year-old Charles Post find a place to live, and gave him food, money, clothes and a cellphone while Post eluded police on charges he shot a man. While at large, Post called police threatening to kill an officer.
Post committed suicide as police closed in after he fatally shot Lower Burrell Officer Derek Kotecki, who arrived to arrest Post at a Dairy Queen in Lower Burrell on Oct. 12, 2011.
Nicole Walters received two years' probation last week, the first six months on house arrest.
