Kirkwood Woman Sentence in 2009 Home Invasion

A Kirkwood woman, who admits participating with her husband in a deadly home-invasion robbery attempt in Windsor in January of 2009, will spend 15 years in prison.

23 year old Ashley Carnevale was sentenced August 13 after pleading guilty to manslaughter and assault rather than stand a second trial.

The woman and her husband, 25 year old Anthony Carnevale III broke into the home of Ethan Button in an attempt to rob him of prescription drugs thatĀ Button told the coupleĀ he would not sell to them.

A relative visiting the home, 39 year old Jean Clark of Parson, Pennsylvania, was fatally shot and Button was wounded.

Anthony Carnavale admitted firing the shots. He’s serving 25 years to life in prison for murder.

Ashley Carnavale had been convicted of murder, assault and two counts of attempted robbery in 2010 and was serving her 15 years to life sentence when the conviction was appealed on claims of a mishandling of the investigation and interrogations.

The Appellate Division agreed, overturned the conviction and ordered a new trial, set for June.

Prior to the start of that trial, Ashley Carnevale opted to accept the manslaughter plea deal, the 15 year sentence with 5 year post-release supervision and waive any right to another appeal.
