CLEVELAND - A prison inmate has been sentenced to 4 1/2 years after admitting he provided a false burial tip in the 2003 disappearance of a 16-year-old Ohio girl.
A judge in Cleveland sentenced 26-year-old Robert Wolford on Tuesday on his guilty plea to obstruction of justice, making a false report and making a false alarm.
Last summer, he tipped authorities to look for the remains of Amanda Berry of Cleveland in a city lot. He was brought to the location, which was dug up with backhoes.
Wolford is serving a 26-year sentence for a 2007 slaying.
Berry was last seen in 2003, when she called her sister to say she was getting a ride home from her job. That was a 10-minute walk from home and several miles from the search location.
