Man accused of 2015 Moniteau County murder sentenced to 25 years in prison

CALIFORNIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

The man accused of a 2015 murder in Moniteau County was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Friday.

Sandy Gallaspie pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of second-degree, online court records said. He was previously charged with first-degree murder.

Court documents say Gallaspie and Suzanne Ponder, a woman also charged in the case, lured Jon Williams to a rural area in Moniteau County for an apparent drug deal.

Gallaspie had been acccused of shooting Williams in the chest and the pair were both accused of moving Williams' remains.

Ponder was sentenced to five years of probation earlier this year. Court records say she pleaded guilty to a felony count of abandonment of a corpse.

Court records say Gallaspie's sentence will run concurrently with any other sentences he's serving.
