LLANO, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas woman accused of killing her husband after texting her plans to a friend hours before the shooting has been sentenced to life in prison.

Austin media outlets report 44-year-old Karra Trichele Allen of Bertram was convicted and sentenced Tuesday.

The Burnet (BER’-net) County Sheriff’s Office says the body of Brian Allen was found at the couple’s home after his wife called authorities to say she shot her spouse on July 1, 2013.

A transcript indicates Allen told a dispatcher she fired in self-defense during an argument.

Court records indicate Allen sent text messages to a friend threatening to shoot and dismember her husband.
