Jon Kienholz, who confessed to the murders of Cynthia Bewick and Neil Howard, has already been sentenced to a minimum of 30 years in prison. Kienholz also known locally as "Bubba," made a plea deal for both counts of murder, under which the State would not seek the death penalty.

The victims, 20-year-old Howard and 18-year-old Bewick, were found dead from gunshot wounds at the top of Dobson Pass on August 8.

Thursday, Hiram Wane Wilson was sentenced to 2 - 5 years on two counts of being an accessory to murder.

Corey Reid was sentenced to a minimum of 30 years in prison on two counts of aiding and abetting.

For his role in the murders, Wood was sentenced to 111 days on two counts of obstructing an officer.

Police had reported Wood was not at the scene of the murders but knew about them and did not inform police.

Shoshone County Sheriff Chuck Reynalds said Wilson confessed to being present when the victims were shot. Reid was arrested in Boise after Reynalds says he drove the victims' car there following the murders.

Wilson, a minor at the time of the murders, was being charged as an adult.

Bewick and Howard had a 9-month-old child together.
