Release Date: Aug 25, 2017

ST. JOHN – (August 25, 2017) – A Stafford woman was sentenced today to more than 21 years in prison for murder, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Misty R. Salem, 36, was sentenced in Stafford County District Court by Senior Judge John Sanders to 253 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections. Last month, a jury found Salem guilty of one count of second degree intentional murder.

The conviction stemmed from the March 2016 death of Samuel Salem.

The case was investigated by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Stafford Police Department. Assistant Attorneys General Will Manly and Adam Zentner of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
