The third person involved in the 2018 killing of an Owatonna man was sentenced Wednesday.

According to the Bluefield Daily Telegraph, Anna Marie Choudhary, 33, of North Carolina, was sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in January.

Warning: This story contains upsetting details.

Choudhary was one of three people charged in the killing of John Thomas McGuire, 38, after what has been described as a "trust game."

Choudhary’s father, Larry Paul McClure Sr., 55, of Kentucky, and her sister, Amanda Michelle Naylor McClure, 31, of Chisago City, Minnesota, previously pleaded guilty.

Larry McClure was sentenced to life in prison after pleading to first-degree murder, while Amanda McClure pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 40 years in prison, per the Bluefield Daily Telegraph.

Larry McClure was in an incestuous relationship with his daughter Amanda, according to court documents, and they conspired to murder McGuire, who was Amanda's boyfriend.

During a Valentine's Day celebration in 2018, Larry McClure suggested they play a trust game that saw them tie McGuire's feet up. As McGuire went to untie his feet, Amanda McClure hit him over the head with a wine bottle.

They then spent 2-3 days torturing McGuire, which included injecting him with methamphetamine and putting a black trash bag over his head, before Choudhary strangled him.

McGuire’s remains were found in a shallow grave in Skydusky, West Virginia in September of 2019, though officials believe he was killed Valentine's Day of 2018.

According to WOAY, Larry and Amanda McClure then had sex, before traveling from West Virginia to Virginia to get married, though incestuous marriage is illegal in Virginia.
