The third and final woman has been sentenced for her involvement in the death of Pueblo businessman, Robert Piserchio. Thirty-eight year old Elizabeth Abeyta will spend 2.5 years in prison, for felony theft.

Abeyta and two other women, 45-year-old Sheen Baker and 40-year-old Karen Depierre, talked their way into Robert Piserchio's home on Stonemoor Drive a week before he was murdered, last year. While the women were in his home, Piserchio's wallet was stolen.

Afterward, Depierre says, she told Aaron Wilkerson about Piserchio's wealth. Wilkerson and three other men, Matthew Barnes, Brandon Armijo, and Acacia Lyndarr are suspected of going to Piserchio's home about a week later. According to police, their intent was to rob Piserchio.

During the robbery, Piserchio was beaten, stabbed, and set on fire. He died of a heart attack induced by the beating, according to an autopsy. Depierre is set to testify against the four men who are all being charged with first degree murder.

According to the judge, Abeyta and Depierre's actions led to Piserchio's started a chain reaction that led to Piserchio's death. Piserchio was a prominent businessman in Pueblo, working in the dental industry. He was also the brother-in-law of former Pueblo Sheriff, Dan Corsentino.
