A man convicted of helping hide the death of a missing Georgia teacher has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
  
News outlets reported that 34-year-old Bo Dukes was sentenced Friday morning in court in Abbeville.
  
Dukes was convicted Thursday night of lying to investigators about the 2005 death of Tara Grinstead. The high school history teacher’s body was burned to ash and bone fragments in a pecan orchard.
  
What happened to the woman wasn’t revealed until Dukes and another man were arrested in 2017.
  
Dukes was convicted of two counts of making a false statement, hindering the arrest of a criminal and concealing a death.
  
His co-defendant, Ryan Alexander Duke, is charged with murder in Grinstead’s death and is scheduled for trial April 1 in Irwin County.
