(WXYZ) — Eevette MacDonald, the ex-girlfriend of the man found guilty of murdering and dismembering Macomb Township teen Stephen McAfee, was sentenced to one year in prison and three years of probation on Thursday for her role in the crime.

MacDonald, 20, pleaded guilty to disinterment and mutilation of a body and being an accessory after the fact. She also testified against Fiacco during his trial earlier this year.

On Feb. 7, a jury found Fiacco guilty of second degree murder and several other charges in the murder and dismemberment of McAfee. The trial lasted several weeks but came to a conclusion after deliberations for several days. The jury found him guilty of second degree murder, guilty of disinternment or mutilation of a dead body, guilty of felony firearm and guilty of lying to a police officer.

Stephen McAfee disappeared on March 10, 2016 after leaving his parents home at 2:30 a.m. He had Asperger's and was bipolar. His parents also believed he may have gotten involved with the wrong people.

He was allegedly shot three to four times the area of 34 Mile and Van Dyke in Bruce Township. Some of his remains were found about six miles away in the area of 28 Mile and Kuntsman Rd in Ray Township.

MacDonald allegedly told her friend about the killing, which prompted her friend to come forward with the information from police. She will not be facing charges.

After the woman went to police with information, they arrested MacDonald, who said that Fiacco shot McAfee and she helped him dismember and bury the body.

Shortly after the interview, police arrested Fiacco who gave the same information and also gave locations of where McAfee's remains were buried.
