COVINGTON, Ky. (FOX19) - The two men arrested in connection to the killing and robbery of a cancer patient were sentenced on Monday by a judge.
Kenneth Jones was sentenced by the judge to 25 years in prison for the 2018 murder of his cousin, Denita “Marci” Satchwell, the court announced on Monday.
Dakota Webster was also sentenced on Monday.
Before making the announcement, the judge reminded him of the severity of his actions.
“And you’ve ruined a lot of people’s lives including yours. You understand this. This will follow you the rest of your life,” Judge Katleen Lape said to Webster on Monday.
Webster was sentenced to 12 years in jail for his role in the crime, the judge announced.
Satchwell was a 58-year-old Stage 4 lung cancer patient at the time of her death in 2018.
According to court documents, Jones targeted his cousin in a plot to take her painkillers.
Jones and Webster planned and carried out the robbery at Satchwell’s house, which “resulted in the death of the victim,” court documents showed in 2018.
Jones stored Satchwell’s body in the trunk of a vehicle overnight, police said at the time in 2018.
Jones and Webster then drove to Boone County and dumped the body in the woods, according to police.
Satchwell had been missing for a little more than a week before her body was found in the woods of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky.
FOX19 Now had a conversation with Satchwell’s upstairs neighbor the day after this happened in 2018.
Tricia Schneider said Satchwell was a kind and caring person, who knew she was dying and she just wanted to be happy.
So, Schneider said every day someone would run up to UDF for Satchwell and bring her back a pack of cigarettes and a strawberry shake.
