A Callaway County woman will spend the rest of her life in prison for the murder of her husband.

In January Sandra Plunkett was found guilty of the 2011 murder of her husband in Holts Summit.

Prosecutors say she planned the murder to get life insurance money to feed her heroin addiction.  Plunkett says she was a battered spouse.

Monday, the judge sentenced her to life in prison without the possibility of parole or probation.
