Kansas woman gets nearly 27 years in prison in killing

MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — One of three suspects in the fatal stabbing of a former Oregon resident has been sentenced to nearly 27 years in prison.

The Salina Journal reports that 27-year-old Kamra Kay Farrell, of McPherson, was been sentenced last week in McPherson County District Court. Farrell pleaded guilty in February to voluntary manslaughter, kidnapping and aggravated robbery in the 2014 death of 39-year-old James Croft.

Additional unrelated charges against Farrell contributed to the sentence.

Authorities say Croft’s body was found in a car in a ditch near Galva, 10 miles east of McPherson. Croft lived in Portland, Oregon, before moving to Kansas. A second defendant was sentenced to life in prison in the killing, and a third is awaiting trial.
