The wife of a man convicted in the 2009 death of a Kansas woman is facing charges for allegedly helping her husband avoid arrest.
Nemaha County prosecutors on Tuesday charged 58-year-old Rebecca Hollister of Topeka with aiding a felon.
Hollister's husband, Roger Hollister, is serving a life sentence for the first-degree murder of 58-year-old Patricia Kimmi of rural Horton. She disappeared in November 2009 and her remains weren't found until May 2010.
Prosecutors allege Rebecca Hollister helped her husband avoid arrest between the day Kimmi went missing and the day Roger Hollister was convicted.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports she is being held in the Nemaha County Jail on $100,000 bond.
It was not immediately clear if Rebecca Hollister had an attorney.
