Local News

ROBINSON, Ill. (WTWO/WAWV) — A Crawford County woman was sentenced Wednesday for her role in the death of her mother.

A judge sentenced Kristine Phillippe to 18 years in prison, followed by three years of mandatory supervised release.

Phillippe and her boyfriend at the time, Jason Strawbridge, were arrested last year after Phillippe’s mother, 62-year-old Sandra Kendall was found dead from a gunshot wound in her Bellair, Illinois home.

Phillippe pleaded guilty to home invasion, and murder charges against her were not pursued.

Last month, Strawbridge was convicted of murder, and was sentenced to 45 years in prison.
