Austin woman gets 50 years for attack on ex-spouse
May 22, 2013 10:46 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A Central Texas woman has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for beating and shooting her ex-husband amid a child custody dispute.
Jurors in Austin on Tuesday sentenced Andria Stanley over the February 2012 early-morning attack. She was convicted of aggravated kidnapping, burglary of habitation and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Jason Witt and Stanley divorced in 2009. They have two children.
The Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/13FU79W ) reports the defense referred to the Bible and redemption in seeking leniency for Stanley.
Prosecutors say Stanley left the children with her mother in Palestine (PAL'-uhs-teen) and drove to Austin with her father's gun and a wooden club.
Witt testified his ex-wife broke into his Austin home as he was falling asleep, then beat and shot him.
