PORTLAND, Oregon — A man guilty of being an accessory after the fact in the killing of a woman on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation won't have to serve more jail time.

The Oregonian reports ( U.S. District Court Judge Anna J. Brown gave 21-year-old Christopher Arthur credit for the nearly two years he's spent in jail. She sentenced him to probation and ordered him to complete his high school equivalency.

Arthur was 18 when he scrubbed the bloody crime scene after the killing of Faron Kalama.

Prosecutors say Angeledith Smith and Tana Lawrence tortured, sexually assaulted and killed Kalama because they believed she had affairs with Smith's husband and Lawrence's boyfriend. When authorities found Kalama's body, it was so badly broken that the side of her face was caved in and her right eye was missing.
