Woman Sentenced to 14 Years in Topeka Homicide

KSAL StaffAugust 17, 2014

The 36-year-old wife of the gunman who killed one man and wounded a woman in a shooting in Topeka has been sentenced to 14 years and one month in prison.

Jamie Engstrom was sentenced Friday for conspiracy to commit second-degree murder and other charges in the February 2013 death of 34-year-old Ricky Mitchell of Topeka and the wounding of 28-year-old Bridget Gakle of Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports her Kansas sentences will run concurrently with sentences in Nebraska, where she and her husband, Michael Dean Engstrom, were captured after a shootout with law enforcement officers the same day as the Topeka shootings.

Michael Engstrom was sentenced to life in prison for the Topeka shootings, which will run concurrently with sentences he received in Nebraska.
