Sentenced To 50-Years For Husband's Kidnapping


An East Texas woman has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for kidnapping her husband who was later found murdered.

This week, a Titus County grand jury sentenced Samantha Wohlford, 27, on an aggravated kidnapping charge. According to the Titus County Sheriff's Office, Wohlford was convicted for her participating in an abduction that led to the murder of her husband, Earnest Lee Ibarra.

Wohlford is the fourth person to be sentenced in the case. She remains under indictment and is facing murder charges in Camp County.

On Feb. 20, 2015, Titus County deputies responded to a reported home invasion and abduction on County Road 2630, in the southwest part of Titus County.

"Titus County Sheriff Tim Ingram and his investigators, found Wohlford’s account of the alleged offense, to be suspicious as the intense investigation was underway that February morning," TCSO said in a statement posted to social media.

Investigators later determined the location of Ibarra's body, the weapon believed to be used in the crime and that the murder occurred in Camp County.
