ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A woman who made up a story to get another man killed is headed to prison Tuesday.
Danny Trujillo shot and killed Eloy Leyba in 2014 and the District Attorney’s office claimed he did it after Samantha Garcia told him Leyba was sexually abusing her daughter.
The DA’s office says Garcia was lying and was just trying to get someone to kill Leyba.
Trujillo was sentenced last year to 15 years in prison.
In April, Garcia pleaded no contest to all counts.
Tuesday in court, Judge Brett Lovelace sentenced Garcia to 12 years.
Judge Lovelace also required Garcia to spend that time in the Department of Corrections Psychiatric Unit.
