A woman who watched her boyfriend murder six members of his own family in 2016 was sentenced to 25 years in prison last week, according to the Chicago-Sun Times.
25-year-old Jafeth Ramos pleaded guilty to one count of armed robbery in connection with the February 2016 killings, which were committed by her former boyfriend, Diego Uribe.
Uribe was sentenced to life in prison in November.
Ramos admitted that she went with Urbe to his aunt Maria Martinez’s home in 2016, where he fatally shot her after demanding money.
Uribe also beat her brother Noe Martinez Jr. to death.
He then fatally stabbed their mother, Rosaura Martinez, killed their 10-year-old and 13-year-old children, and killed Noe Martinez Sr. when he returned home.
Ramos and Uribe were arrested in May 2016.

Ramos faced nearly 500 criminal counts in connection with the killings but entered the guilty plea as part of a deal with Cook County prosecutors after agreeing to testify against Uribe.
Uribe is not believed to have directly killed any of the six victims, but she was still described by authorities as an “active participant” in the killings. The pair stole an Xbox and approximately $550 in cash.
In court, she testified that she accompanied Uribe to the family’s home and admitted that she did not call for help or try to leave during the ordeal.
When she was sentenced last Tuesday, she declined to give a statement and told jurors she accepted the plea deal in hopes she could see her son again.
She described how Uribe killed all of the family members.
Uribe’s lawyers argued in his defense that he was present when the family was killed in a robbery gone wrong by four masked men.
