NH Home Invasion Murder Accomplice Sentenced

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) – A New Hampshire man who pleaded guilty to hiding evidence and concocting an alibi for two others convicted in a home invasion and machete attack is going to prison.

In court Wednesday, 21-year-old Autumn Savoy apologized to the family of Kimberly Cates and said he had a chance to do the right thing, but didn’t do it. He was sentenced to five to 12 years in prison.

Savoy testified in the trials of Steven Spader and Christopher Gribble. Both were sentenced to life for the 2009 home invasion that left Kimberly Cates dead and her 11-year-old daughter, Jaimie, severely maimed.

Savoy is the last of five defendants to be sentenced. Quinn Glover was sentenced to 20 to 40 years and Billy Marks was
sentenced to 30 to 60 years.
