That press release is just amazing, the citizen that reported the information will get a huge reward $100,000 :), now the biggest thanks we have to give is to the Cumberland County sheriffs office, they responded really quickly in this case could have meant the difference between a capture and a fugitive slipping away and thankfully this was a capture.

She plead guilty to reckless homicide as opposed to first degree murder which is probably why it wasn't more years.
John Walsh himself says he often suggests to families to just accept plea deals even if it means less time for the defendant to not go through the pain of a trial- perpetrator still going away for a long time and nothing will bring a loved one back anyway.
Also while making no excuses, it seems this whole saga was an ongoing argument /feud that escalated to where it didn't have to go- as opposed to Minor deliberately plotting to kill her victim(s) which is probably why reckless homicide and not a first degree life in prison homicide was a possible option.
