Colver, Witt sentenced in mother's murder

PLACERVILLE, CA - Steven Colver, convicted of stabbing to death the mother of his girlfriend two years ago, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in a Placerville courtroom Friday afternoon.

Ex-girlfriend Tylar Witt, 16, received 15 years to life for pleading guilty to second degree murder. In a plea deal made with the El Dorado County District Attorney's Office, she withdrew a guilty plea to first degree murder in exchange for her testimony against Colver and a shorter sentence.

The couple was accused of killing Joanne Witt, 47, in her El Dorado Hills home in June 2009. According to previous reports, they feared what would happen when the victim reported Colver, then 19, for having sex with her daughter, who was 14.

Colver, now 21, was also found guilty in his June trial of special allegations of lying in wait, use of deadly weapon and killing a witness to a crime.
