Woman Who Aided Neal Receives Sentence

A Roby woman was sentenced this month to four years in state prison for her role in aiding suspected killer Neldon Neal.

Kathy J. McComas, 53, received the sentence from 25th Judicial Circuit Court Division 2 Judge Mary Sheffield. Based on a prison evaluation after 120 days, McComas may be considered for parole. She pleaded guilty in January to hindering prosecution.

McComas is one of four women who pled guilty to aiding Neal after he allegedly murdered his common-law wife March 13, 2007. They reportedly provided Neal food and other items as he hid in the woods from authorities for 62 days.

Evelyn Lansdown, 33, and Erica Moore, 32, received the same sentence as McComas in October 2007. Both are Plato residents.

Mary E. Thomas, 39, of Roby, was sentenced in March to a two-year suspended sentence, two years probation, 40 hours community service, $300 fine and 30 days in the Texas County Jail with credit given for time served.
