 Kim MoretzKim Moretz An Effingham County woman was sentenced to 10 years for her part in the death and dismembering of Charlie Ray III.  Last Friday morning a jury convicted Kim Moretz of concealing Ray's death who was killed by her husband, Chad Moretz in their home in Westwood Heights in Rincon.  Ray suffered from Tourette's Syndrome.  Investigators said he had been stabbed to death.  Parts of his dismembered body were found in the Moretz's home and a storage unit in South Carolina.  Chad Moretz did not go to trial for the murder.  He was shot and killed in a standoff with police.


     After deliberating for three hours the Effingham County jury found her guilty of hindering the apprehension of a criminal by giving false information to investigators.  The jury acquitted her of tampering with evidence.  Kim Moretz was sentenced to serve five years in prison and another five years on probation.


  After hearing the conviction Friday, Charlie Ray, Jr., said he was happy with the verdict regarding his son's murder and "felt like justice was served."  He said the family was looking forward to getting back to a "normal life" as quickly as possible.


  Charlie's mother, Sandi, said "This is something that we will never, never get over.”
