Woman Sentenced to 40 Years in Prison for Strangulation Death

DILLON, Mont. (NMB) – The Montana Standard reports that a Dillon woman has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after admitting to strangling her boyfriend to death.

Sandy Rose Moore, 21, was sentenced Tuesday in State District Court after pleading guilty to mitigated deliberate homicide in June.

Moore admitted to strangling Larry Coon, 49, with a rope in January 2020. Moore has said she was in “extreme emotional duress” after Coon threatened to call child protective services on a family member.

Coon’s body was found by police between a washer and dryer, with a plastic bag over his head, in the couple’s rental apartment.

Moore was initially charged with deliberate homicide, but the charge was amended in the plea agreement.
