LUDINGTON (WKZO) -- The mother of convicted cop killer Eric Knysz has cut a deal with prosecutors after she was charged in aiding in his escape by helping him steal a car.

Knysz was arrested soon after shooting and killing state trooper Paul Butterfield. Soon after sentencing, he hung himself in a holding cell in Jackson.

As part of the deal, Tammi Spofford’s will serve less than a year in prison for aiding and abetting.

In exchange the prosecutor will drop a charge of unlawfully driving away a vehicle.

She will be sentenced June 17th.
