A couple facing first-degree murder charges in the death of a woman who was missing for two and a half weeks before her body was found dumped at the bottom of a ravine have been given lengthy federal prison sentences.
Wilfred "Wes" Wright and Amanda K. Wright were sentenced on drug charges.
Wright got 11 years and three months and Ms. Wright received nine years.
Sentencing was by Federal Judge Sandy Mattice in Chattanooga.
Agents said they found meth labs in the couple's vehicle as well as their home at Reliance, Tn.
Wilfred Wright led police to the body of Faith Nicole Corum that was dumped off a cliff in the Cherokee National Forest back in mid-January. The body was found in early February.
Ms. Wright said they found her not responsive from a drug overdose and, rather than call 911, her husband began wrapping up her body. She said he then dragged the body to his vehicle and drove off.
A medical examiner said the victim, who is from McMinn County, did have high drug levels in her body, but she died from multiple blows to her head and other parts of her body as well as from asphyxiation. She was found with two plastic bags tied over her head.
