CLINTON, MO – A Clinton woman will reportedly serve 20 years in prison for the death of a police officer.
Tammy Widger was sentenced Friday to 20 years for second degree murder in the March 2018 death of officer Christopher Ryan Morton. Morton was killed by another person in Widger’s residence, James Waters. The gunman was killed during the incident. Prosecutors argued Widger did little to nothing to stop the gun battle or aid wounded officers.
A 911 error reportedly resulted in responding officers being sent to the residence by mistake.
