Woman pleads guilty to hindering prosecution in murder case
BOONE COUNTY - A Columbia woman has pleaded guilty to hindering a murder prosecution back in 2013.
The Boone County Assistant Prosecutor Tracy Gonzalez said Tuesday Kimberly Huett-Linzie entered the plea on Monday.
Huett-Linzie was accused of being an accomplice in the July 2013 shooting death of Tre'veon Marshall at McKee Park. Nicholas Thomas and Joshua Murray were also charged with being involved in the shooting.
A jury found Nicholas Thomas guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in June of 2014. He is currently serving a life sentence.
A judge sentenced Murray to 10 years for assault in connection to the murder in October of 2014.
The probable cause statement said Thomas and Murray approached Marshall with t-shirts around their faces. Thomas walked past Marshall and shot him in the back. He then shot Marshall four more times. Murray and Thomas ran to a friend's house. Huett-Linzie is accused of driving the car Murray and Thomas were in the night of the murder.
The statement also said the suspects told police they were friends with Bryan Rankin, who was the Columbia teen murdered by Lamarr Mayfield in 2012. The suspect said Marshall and Mayfield were friends, which caused tension.
Marshall was a 17-year-old former Hickman High School student.
