GREENVILLE — A judge has agreed to a 10-year sentence reduction for a woman convicted in a Greenville County dismemberment case.
Carman Jenkins on Monday was sentenced to 40 years in prison. She had originally received a 50-year sentence after pleading guilty to murder in the 2008 death of Mekole Harris.
Jenkins’ husband is serving a life sentence for killing Harris, then cutting off her hands and feet and leaving them as blackmail at the home of another woman who was involved in a three-way relationship with the couple.
Fingerprints were used to identify Harris’ severed hands and feet, found April 7, 2008, in black plastic bags at two homes about a mile apart.
Prosecutors agreed to Carman Jenkins’ sentence reduction because of her help in convicting her husband.
