SPRINGFIELD, Ga. (AP) — Effingham County court officials say a man accused of concealing evidence in the death and dismemberment of a southeastern Georgia man has been sentenced to five months of probation.
A court clerk said Monday that Kevin Lambert was sentenced Aug. 6 on charges of concealing a death, tampering with evidence and hindering the prosecution of a criminal.
Lambert and his sister, Kimberly Moretz, are accused of interfering in the investigation of Moretz's husband, Chad, who is accused of stabbing and dismembering 35-year-old Charlie Ray.
Officials say Kevin Lambert, who has been in jail since mid-January, will get credit for time served and his sister will be tried by a jury in late September.
Authorities have not disclosed the circumstances that led to Ray's slaying.
