COLDSPRING – Robert Fulton received a fi ve year sentence Monday for his part in helping to bury the body of his wife’s mother in their backyard, according to San Jacinto County Criminal District Attorney Bill Burnett. Dorothy Mae Hey’s body was found buried behind the home of Betty and Robert Fulton located at 100 Trail’s End Road, just off Fostoria Road in San Jacinto County last October. Investigators believe that Hey’s daughter Roseanne Duhon Klumpp killed Hey during an argument and transported Hey’s body from her Louisiana home to San Jacinto County. Hey, 60, was reported missing on Oct. 15, 2008, from her Jefferson Davis Parish home. Klumpp was charged with second degree murder in Louisiana. Betty, along with Robert Fulton and a friend, Gordon Hall, were charged with tampering with evidence, a second degree felony that carries a penalty of 2-25 years in prison and a $10,000 fi ne. Burnett said Betty Fulton and Hall will go before the judge for sentencing in the next couple of weeks. Investigators believe that Klumpp put her mother’s body in a box and stored it in a storage facility in Louisiana before contacting her sister (Betty Fulton). Betty went to Louisiana and they transported the body to Betty’s house where she was buried.
