FILLMORE, Utah (AP) -- An artist who killed her husband and towed his body out of the house with a Jeep has been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison.

Carole Alden was sentenced yesterday in 4th District Court in Fillmore. She had pleaded guilty in June to a charge of manslaughter in the shooting death of Martin Sessions. He was killed in June 2006.

Alden and Sessions had been married for five years.

The Millard County sheriff's office had responded many times to reports of domestic problems at their trailer near Delta in central Utah, and Sessions had pleaded guilty to assault and domestic violence.

After killing her husband, she towed the body to a grave dug next to a pond and waited a day before calling 911.

Alden is a painter and a sculptor whose ceramic floating dragon was featured at the 2006 Utah Arts Festival.
