Woman gets four-year sentence for multiple cases
by Cris Ritchie
HAZARD – A Perry County woman was sentenced to serve four years in prison in three separate cases Thursday in Perry Circuit Court.
Karah K. Combs, 36, of Hazard, was indicted three times in 2011 on various charges, including theft, drug possession and escape. She entered guilty pleas in each of the cases and was in court this week for formal sentencing.
In the first case, Combs was indicted in July on charges of felony theft, first-degree wanton endangerment and second-degree persistent felony offender. She was alleged to have stolen $1,000 from a woman at a local restaurant in May 2011. She pleaded guilty to theft in exchange for a sentence of three years to serve while the remaining charges were dismissed.
Combs was indicted again in September on one count of second-degree escape for absconding from home incarceration. She entered a guilty plea to an amended charge of tampering with a monitoring device and was sentenced to serve one year in prison.
In her third case, Combs was indicted on a charge of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, for which she pleaded guilty in exchange for a one-year sentence. That sentence will be served concurrently with the second case and two additional cases in Fayette County, but consecutively with the theft case for a total of four years to serve.
Also sentenced on Thursday was 33-year-old Mark E. Spencer, of Hooterville, who was indicted on a charge of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. He was accused of selling oxycodone and methadone to a cooperating witness in July 2009, and was sentenced on Thursday to serve three years in prison.
Susan Renee Feltner, 33, of Louisville, was also sentenced to serve three years in prison this week. Feltner was indicted in January 2011 on one count of theft by unlawful taking over $500 for taking a ring, games, purses and other items during an incident in November 2010.
