Bootheel Couple Sentenced in Kidnapping & Beating of Elderly Woman

AUGUST 11, 2004 - Posted at 4:15 p.m. CDT

 

BUFFALO, MO - A Dunklin County couple was sentenced to more than 25 years in prison Monday after pleading guilty to the assault of a Campbell woman who was left for dead alongside a southwest Missouri road eight months ago.

Gregory Allen, 25, and 36-year-old Toni Allen of Campbell were charged in connection with the December 21 abduction of 67-year-old Carmen Tibbs.  Tibbs was allegedly abducted from her home and taken to Dallas County, Missouri, where she was beaten and her throat was cut before being left for dead.  The victim eventually made her way to a nearby home where she summoned help and identified her alleged attackers.

The Allens were sentenced after appearing in Dallas County Circuit Court.  The couple is also due to appear in Dunklin County Circuit Court on August 25 on charges of first degree robbery.
