Eric Knysz's Mother Waives Preliminary Hearing

Eric Knysz's mother waives her right to a preliminary examination in the Trooper Butterfield murder case. 

50-year-old, Tammi Spofford, of Irons, appeared in the Mason County Court yesterday on the charges of accessory after the fact and unlawfully driving away a motor vehicle. Because she waived her rights, she will be arraigned next week in Circuit Court. Spofford is being accused of helping the Knyszes steal a car after Butterfield was shot.  Spofford's daughter-in-law, Sarah, was given a two to five year prison sentence on Tuesday for the same charges.
