PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) -- A woman who helped the man who killed Washington State Patrol Trooper Tony Radulescu (rad-ihl-EHS'-kyoo) was sentenced Monday in Port Orchard to 14 months in prison.

Twenty-six-year-old Corinne Nelson pleaded guilty to rendering criminal assistance in a deal with Kitsap County prosecutors.

Prosecutors say she gave Joshua Blake a ride in February as he was trying to flee from the shooting near Gorst. Blake later killed himself.

Two men also have pleaded guilty to helping Blake and two others are awaiting trial.

KOMO reports (http://is.gd/n57G9i) a sixth accomplice, 18-year-old Megan Mollett, was convicted of making false statements to police who were looking for Blake. She faces up to 10 years in prison when she is sentenced Tuesday in Kitsap County Superior Court.
