Vienna Man Sentenced To 7 Years For Hiding Body Of Friend Who Overdosed

A Vienna man who admitted hiding a friend's body in the woods after a heroin overdose rather than seeking help for her has been sentenced to nearly seven years in prison.

Prosecutors on Friday requested a 10-year sentence for 20-year-old Kyle Alifom, who pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence after first being charged with heroin distribution resulting in death.

Alifom was with 16-year-old Emylee Lonczak of McLean in August when they and a group of friends traveled to the District of Columbia to buy heroin. Lonczak, using heroin for the first time, passed out.

Instead of seeking help, the group dropped her off at Alifom's house, where she died. Alifom hid the body, fearing he would get in trouble.

Alifom's lawyer sought a sentence of less than 1.5 years.
