In addition to child endangerment Hartley has been charged with 2nd degree statutory sodomy, keeping or maintaining a public nuisance , tampering with physical evidence in a felony prosecution and corpse abandonment. She was not charged with murder.
Khighla Parks was lured to a sex, drugs and booze party allegedly held at Ms. Hartley’s residence in Buffalo, where Parks apparently died and was dumped into Truman Lake in Benton County.
Two others have been charged in the case, Anthony J. Balbirnie, 50, and Larry Warner. Balbirnie is believed to be Hartley’s sometime boyfriend.
Warner recently received 10 years on some of the charges against him. The second degree murder charge was not considered.
Balbirnie, who reportedly lured the teen to the party on Facebook, has not yet had a trial. His next court date is in August 2015.
