Accomplice sentenced in death of Venus Stewart

A man accused of being the accomplice in the abduction and slaying of a 32-year-old Michigan woman has been sentenced to a year in jail and three years probation. The Kalamazoo Gazette reported Friday that St. Joseph County Circuit Judge Paul Stutesman announced Ricky Spencer's sentence in Centreville. Venus Stewart disappeared in April 2010. Her body has not been found. Stewart's estranged husband, Doug Stewart, was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced in April to life in prison.
