TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) - The wife of an Arkansas man who faked his own death by reportedly jumping from a bridge was sentenced to seven years for her part in the plan.
Tyra Cook pleaded guilty Thursday to hindering apprehension, theft and forgery.
Prosecutors say Tyra told police her husband, Jody Cook, jumped from the bridge near Doddridge, Arkansas last summer.
Cook was later found with Tyra and their two kids in Mena, Arkansas. He pleaded guilty to rape and theft charges and was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
