CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - A Tampa Bay area woman has been sentenced to life in prison for her husband’s 2008 murder.

A Pinellas County judge sentenced 48-year-old Rebecca Fenton on Friday after a jury found her guilty of first-degree murder.

The Tampa Tribune (https://goo.gl/0RJE4L ) reports that Fenton called 911 in February 2008 to report finding her husband, 57-year-old Larry Fenton, in a pool of blood at their Clearwater home.

Despite inconsistencies in her story to police, Rebecca Fenton wasn’t charged until March 2014, after authorities say she threatened a boyfriend with a knife and told him she would kill him like she killed her husband.
