The second of two men accused of covering up the murder of a woman found in McKenzie County has pleaded guilty.
Ralph Broxson was charged with hindering law enforcement. Authorities say it was Broxson’s house that Damian Carrillo and Jonah Hendricks went to after the murder of Lindsay White. Authorities say Broxson had knowledge of the murder and allowed Carrillo and Hendricks to store items used in the crime underneath a shed in his house.
Carrillo, the other man charged in the case, also pleaded guilty to hindering law enforcement last week and was sentenced to three years.
Hendricks, who is believed to have carried out the murder of White, later shot and killed himself.
Broxson was sentenced to five years, the maximum, for the hindering law enforcement charge.
He also pleaded guilty to two counts of terrorizing, possession of stolen property, and aggravated assault charges. Those are related to other cases. All sentences will run concurrently.
Broxson declined to make a statement in the courtroom during his sentencing.
