MOUNT VERNON - Ashli Price, 30, of Mount Vernon, pleaded guilty this morning to obstructing justice, a third degree felony, in the courtroom of Knox county Common Pleas Court Judge Otho Eyster.

Price was indicted in October for allegedly harboring Travis Bonham for several days following the September 29 murders of his mother, Sandra Stelk, and Jamie Barber, at Stelk's home on Coshocton Rd. outside of Mount Vernon. Bonham was, at that time, wanted on a grand theft charge.

The pair were arrested in Licking County after a Mount Vernon Police Officer spotted Bonham in the passenger seat of Price's vehicle and followed them. Price was arrested for driving under suspension. She pleaded guilty to that charge in Mount Vernon Municipal court and was sentenced on March 30 to 30 days in jail, to begin on July 5 of this year, with credit for time served.

Bonham pleaded guilty earlier this month to two counts of aggravated murder, one count of tampering with evidence, and one count having weapons under disability.

Price was arrested at a convenience store on the east side of Columbus on November 3 by Columbus Police after a several day search following her October 26 indictment on the obstructing justice charge.

Court Records reveal that, dating back to 2005, Price has faced a number of charges, including child endangerment and possession of drug abuse instrument charges.  She was convicted of trafficking in drugs, a fourth degree felony in the Knox County Court of Common Pleas in 2013.

The case will now proceed into the sentencing phase, in which a pre-sentence investigation will be conducted. Sentencing is set for June 17.
