JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – On Wednesday, Circuit Court Judge Victor Hill sentenced Michelle Despain to 30 years in prison for her part in the 2011 murder of her husband, Marc.

She will be eligible for parole after five years.

Last month Despain pleaded guilty to three counts of hindering the apprehension and prosecution of capital murder.

As a result of the plea deal, capital murder charges were dropped against her.
