BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 50-year-old Baton Rouge woman will be sentenced Dec. 3 after being convicted in the 2012 shooting death of her boyfriend.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1fTzEMP) an East Baton Rouge Parish jury found Jacqulyne Scott guilty Friday of second-degree murder in the death of killing of 37-year-old Dale Vincent Bentley at his home on Aug. 11, 2012.

Scott faces an automatic term of life in prison. State District Judge Trudy White ordered Scott held without bail.

Prosecutors say Scott went to Bentley’s home and the two began arguing. Authorities say she shot Bentley multiple times.

Scott testified she shot Bentley when he attacked her.

Prosecutors say Scott didn’t explain why she shot Bentley in the back - and not at close range - if she was being attacked.
