PITTSBURG – (April 29, 2013) – A Pittsburg woman was sentenced today to more than 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder and manufacturing meth, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Amie Lee Ryburn, 32, was sentenced to 304 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections. District Judge A.J. Wachter handed down the sentence in Crawford County District Court. The charges stemmed from the 2010 death of 29-year-old Pittsburg resident Ian P. Monaghan.
The Pittsburg Police Department and Crawford County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case, along with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Jasper County, Mo., Sheriff’s Office. Assistant Attorney General Steven Karrer of Schmidt’s office and Crawford County Attorney Michael Gayoso prosecuted the case.
