LUDINGTON, MI (AP) -

The mother of a man convicted of killing a Michigan state trooper has pleaded to an accessory charge.  

The Ludington Daily News reports Tammi Lynne Spofford pleaded no contest in Mason County Circuit Court Tuesday to accessory after the fact of a felony.  

The Irons resident is accused of helping her son, Eric Knysz, and his wife, Sarah Knysz, after the fatal shooting of Michigan State Police Trooper Paul Butterfield last year.  

Spofford's no-contest plea is not an admission of guilt, but will be treated as one when she is sentenced June 17.  

Eric Knysz was found guilty in February of killing Butterfield and hanged himself last month at a detention center in Jackson.

Sarah Knysz is serving 2-5 years in prison for accessory after the fact.
