OGDEN — A woman accused of helping her husband dump their teenage baby sitter’s body in the woods after a night of sex and drugs is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.

Dea Millerberg, 41, agreed to a plea deal after testifying against her husband. She pleaded guilty in June to three felonies, including desecration of a human body. She faces up to five years in prison under the terms of the deal.

Prosecutors said Millerberg and her husband had a drug-fueled, salacious sexual relationship with 16-year-old Alexis Rasmussen that led to her death from an overdose in 2011.

Her husband, 38-year-old Eric Millerberg, is serving up to life in prison after he was found guilty of child abuse homicide and other charges.
