Woman connected to Amanda Lankey case sentenced to jail

The sister of the suspect in the 2004 murder of a 13-year-old West Michigan girl is headed to jail. Candace Baumgartner-Wallis was sentenced Monday to 30 weekends in the Newaygo County jail on a perjury charge for lying to police during the investigation. She will also have to take a polygraph test to reveal what she knows about the murder. Wallis-Baumgartner was a White Cloud police officer when her brother, Cecil Wallis, allegedly killed Amanda Lankey nearly a decade ago. Lankey disappeared from a friend's house and her body was found in the Manistee National Forest. The suspect took his own life in 2011. (MRN) image by: (Salvatore Vuono)
