PAWHUSKA — An Oklahoma woman has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty in last year's beating death of a 61-year-old Bartlesville man.

Timothy Hauser disappeared on Aug. 9, 2012, after leaving a Bartlesville casino. His body was discovered months later in rural Osage County.

A local newspaper reports that 29-year-old Trysta Alberta Eileen Shaffer pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree murder in Hauser's death. Earlier this month, 42-year-old Rusty Boyd Petty pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. He also was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Investigators say security video shows Hauser leaving the casino with Petty and Shaffer, and prosecutors alleged Hauser was killed as part of a robbery.
