The woman who pleaded no contest to being an accessory to murder has been sentenced to five years in prison. Amber Delight Sanders turned on a faucet so victim Justin Brewer could not be heard as he was tortured in a northwest Bakersfield home two years ago.

Killer Matthew Mejia was sentenced to more than 36 years in prison last month, while two other accomplices will be sentenced later.
