ALFRED, Maine (AP) - A woman charged with murdering her former husband in front of their young children has been sentenced to 32 years in prison, the maximum under a plea agreement.

Kandee Weyland Collind was sentenced Monday after a judge declined to let her withdraw a guilty plea last summer. Law enforcement officials say she stabbed Scott Weyland to death in front of their two children in February 2017 after she learned a judge awarded Weyland primary custody.

Collind has said she didn’t take her medication on the day of the stabbing and wasn’t thinking clearly.

The defense asked the judge to consider her mental health history and argued for a sentence of 25 years. That’s the minimum sentence for a murder conviction in Maine.
