Maine woman sentenced for 50 years for killing husband

A woman in the state of Maine, who is convicted for killing her husband using pliers, a box cutter and a plastic baseball bat, is sentenced for 50 years.

Justice E. Allen Hunter had described Roxanne Jeskey's actions as "monstrous savagery." The judge said that he did not impose a life sentence because of her brain injury. The lawyers in the case argued that the injury contributed to mental problems and resulted in violent outburst in 2011 that claimed her husband's life.
