CRAIG, Colo. (AP) — A woman convicted of helping kidnap two law officers who were held at gunpoint while checking out a suspicious vehicle in Moffat County has been sentenced to 82 years in prison.
Georgie Hand was sentenced Monday after being found guilty of kidnapping, disarming a peace officer and other charges in connection with the March 2015 incident.
Investigators say Hand and her ex-husband, James Damon, stripped the officers of a firearm, stun guns and radios and nearly took one of their vehicles before an officer got his gun back and Damon was shot and killed.
Neither officer was injured in the confrontation near the small town of Dinosaur, about 10 miles from the Utah border.
Court records say Hand told investigators she and Damon had been injecting meth throughout the week.
