LOGAN, Ohio (WCMH/AP) — A third person has been sentenced in the death of a woman killed when she was struck by a log that two teenage boys had pushed off a cliff at Hocking Hills State Park.
Miranda Spencer, 20, of Nelsonville received a suspended 90-day jail sentence Tuesday after she pleaded guilty to obstructing official business, a misdemeanor offense. Spencer had been charged with a felony count of obstructing justice in the Sept. 2, 2019, death of Victoria Schafer.
Schafer, a 44-year-old married mother of four, was taking photos at the foot of the stairs at Old Man’s Cave when she was struck.
The two teenagers — Jaden Churchheus, 17, and Jordan Buckley, 16, of Logan — pleaded guilty in September to involuntary manslaughter. Each was sentenced to three years at a juvenile corrections facility.
Spencer was not a juvenile at the time of Schafer’s death.
