MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A woman accused of helping a Medford woman kill her husband on a camping trip in Northern California has been sentenced to three years in prison.

The Medford Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/Zb0tOK ) reports that 27-year-old Amber Lubbers had pleaded guilty in Siskiyou County to being an accessory after the fact. The sentence was imposed Thursday.

Siskiyou County District Attorney Kirk Andrus says Lubbers was there when 34-year-old Michael Christopher MacCallum was shot to death, and she helped in a cover-up attempt.

MacCallum's wife, 26-year-old Patricia MacCallum, faces a first-degree murder charge, with a trial to begin Aug. 1.

Andrus said Lubbers will testify against her.

Authorities haven't said what they believe is the motive for the killing.
