Woman Pleads To Accessory Charges In Triple Homicide; Sentenced To Probation

​​​​​​​(SHELBY COUNTY D.A. NEWS RELEASE) - A 20-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to three counts of accessory after the fact in a triple homicide case in 2016 involving the purchase of hair extensions, Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich said Thursday.

Defendant Victoria Seay was placed on probation for six years by Criminal Court Judge James Lammey Jr.
