RIPLEY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

A Ripley County woman will spend at least 20 years in prison for murder and possibly even more time on other charges related to her case.

A judge sentenced Chantale Youngblood to 20 years in prison for her part in the murders of Ed Atkinson and Bonnie Chase along with the murder of Irene and Loyd Piatt.

Her father, David Youngblood, also pleaded guilty to the four murders. A jury found her mother, Melissa Youngblood, guilty of killing Atkinson and Chase.

The 20 year sentence is only for the murder charge.

Chantale Youngblood will be sentenced on three additional charges in March of 2014.

A fourth suspect, Keith Boyles, is set to go to trial next year.
