20-year-old Eric Knysz convicted on all counts.

MASON COUNTY (WKZO) -- The mother of cop killer Eric Knysz has gotten a longer term than she bargained for.

As part of her deal with prosecutors, she was supposed to get less than a year in the county jail for being an accessory after the fact in the murder of Trooper Paul Butterfield.

But after hearing the facts of how she acted, and a plea from Butterfield’s fiancé, the judge ignored the deal and gave her 18 months to 5 years in a state prison.

Eric Knysz comitted suicide the week after he was sentenced to life without parole.
