Angie Marie Smith

CULTERVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman tied to the robbery of a Culterville man found dead in his own home has been sentenced.

Angie Marie Smith, 39, was sentenced Thursday afternoon in  Kent County Circuit Court between 5 to 30 years behind bars.

Smith admitted to stealing the wallets and checkbook of Richard Lee Priebe, who was stabbed to death in November 2014. According to court documents, Smith told police Roger Alan Davis planned the robbery, repeatedly cut Priebe’s throat, then tried to set several fires to cover up the crime.

A third person, John Mark Liebek, is already serving 30 years to 45 years in prison for his role in the armed robbery. Court documents indicated Liebek admitted to using the victim’s debit card after the murder.

As part of Smith’s plea deal, prosecutors will recommend a minimum prison sentence of no more than five years for her.
