A New Britain woman has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty under the Alford doctrine, acknowleging there was enough evidence to convict her in a 2009 robbery-murder.

The New Britain Herald reports that Sherri Clark was a participant, with her boyfriend Michael Labarge,  in the bludgeoning and stabbing death of 34-year-old Cornell Johnson.  Labarge was found guilty of the murder and is serving a 65-year prison sentence.

Johnson’s dismembered body was found four days after his family reported him missing.  His car was found, on fire,  in Meriden.  His body was found in a wooded area near the New Britain-Plainville line.
