DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP)
Prosecutors on Friday indicated they were not going to seek the death penalty for Virginia Larzelere, her attorney Thomas Mott said. The judge then sentenced her to life in prison.
Mott says Larzelere will be eligible for parole after serving 25 years. She has served 17.
A jury convicted Larzelere of masterminding the 1991 shotgun slaying of her husband, Dr. Norman Larzelere, at his dental office.
She got a new sentencing hearing because the Florida Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that lawyers botched the sentencing phase of her trial.
