TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A jury has convicted a suburban Tulsa woman in the fatal shooting of her ex-husband and recommended that she spend the rest of her life in prison.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/2nh94S8 ) that jurors spent about two hours deliberating Friday before finding 70-year-old Judith Nix guilty of shooting her ex-husband, Kenneth Nix.

Attorneys for Judith Nix claimed their client suffered from battered woman syndrome and shot her ex-husband in self-defense after years of abuse.

Prosecutors maintained that Judith Nix shot her ex-husband as he slept in bed, then attempted to stage the crime scene to look like a suicide. Prosecutors said she waited more than 12 hours after his death to call police.

Nix will be sentenced on April 5.
