A Hutchinson woman who was involved in a six-hour standoff with police last summer has been sentenced to six years in prison.
Twenty-four-year-old Kayla Salyer Rodriguez was sentenced Friday for aggravated kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault.
The standoff at a Hutchinson apartment began after police were told Rodriguez had forced another woman into the apartment with a gun. No one was injured. She also threatened two other women.
Rodriguez's father, Paul Salyer, was convicted last September of interference with law enforcement for denying his daughter was inside the apartment when police called.
The Hutchinson News reports prosecutors believe 27-year-old Jennifer Heckel was killed in June 2011 by three men who went to the wrong home while searching for Rodriguez to rob her of drugs and money.
