CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A 75-year-old Missouri woman convicted of killing her husband in the mid-1970s in Wyoming faces 20 years to life when she's sentenced Monday in Cheyenne.
During Alice Uden's trial this spring, jurors didn't completely buy her argument she shot Ronald Holtz to defend her toddler daughter.
Her claims that Holtz was abusive are likely to come up again during sentencing.
Uden was arrested last year after Holtz's remains were recovered last year from an abandoned mine on a ranch between Cheyenne and Laramie.
Also arrested was her current husband, 71-year-old Gerald Uden, who was charged separately with killing his wife and two children in central Wyoming in 1980.
He has pleaded guilty.
Their bodies haven't been found.
The couple had been living in the rural Ozarks until their arrests.
