Eric Knysz's mother will be in court this afternoon for her role in the Trooper Butterfield case.
50-year-old, Tammi Spofford, of Irons, is charged with accessory after the fact and unlawfully driving away a motor vehicle. Both charges carry a five-year sentence. Spofford allegedly helped the Knyszs steal a car in Branch Township, after Butterfield was murdered. She was arraigned in December and has been out on bail since.
