KLEBERG COUNTY, Texas (TCD) -- A Utah woman pleaded guilty this week to killing a couple from New Hampshire and burying their bodies on a rural stretch of the beach.
According to the Corpus Christi Caller Times, Amanda Noverr entered the plea on Tuesday, Feb. 15, for charges of first-degree murder, tampering with evidence, unlawful possession of a firearm, and theft. She will be sentenced to 20 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
Noverr’s reported co-conspirator, Adam Williams, also pleaded guilty in November. The Corpus Christi Caller Times reports Williams' plea deal stated he would spend life in prison without the possibility of parole, but prosecutors would not seek the death penalty against him.
Prosecutors reportedly said Williams and Noverr, who were a couple, shot James and Michelle Butler while engaging in a "criminal transaction."
KIII-TV reports Williams and Noverr were found in Mexico and extradited back to the United States.
The Butlers were reportedly last heard from on Oct. 16, 2019, The Associated Press reports. Their family told investigators the Butlers had been traveling around in an RV and were on their way to Fort Lauderdale to sell Christmas trees.
