A man charged in connection with the disappearance of Kiplyn Davis has been sentenced to five years in prison for perjury.

Christopher Jeppson, 30, was sentenced this afternoon in federal court for lying to a grand jury investigating Davis' disappearance in 1995. Jeppson was given an enhancement because the judge said he was obstructing the investigation.

Jeppson is charged in Provo's 4th District Court with first-degree felony murder in connection with Davis' disappearance. So is Timmy Brent Olson.

Davis, 15, disappeared in May 1995 at Spanish Fork High School. Authorities believe she was raped, murdered and her body buried in Spanish Fork Canyon.

Her body has not been found.
