McCafferty Gets 18 Years In Husband's Death

NEWPORT, Ky. (AP) - Lawyers have agreed to a sentence of 18 years in prison for a northern Kentucky woman convicted of killing her husband.

A Campbell County Circuit Court jury on Monday night found Cheryl McCafferty guilty of first-degree manslaughter in the 2007 death of her husband, Robert McCafferty. Cheryl McCafferty claimed during the trial that she shot her husband in self-defense.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports that the defense and prosecution agreed to the sentence on Tuesday morning.

McCafferty waived her rights to appeal as a condition of the deal. She would be eligible for parole in January 2011 under terms of the agreement.
