SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A suburban Salt Lake City woman has been sentenced to a year in jail and alcohol counseling in the shooting death of her husband.
Becky Lynn Peacock pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in an agreement with prosecutors.
A judge sentenced her yesterday to a year in the Salt Lake County Jail and says she must get help for alcoholism and mental health problems during four years of probation.
The 52-year-old was fighting with her husband, Michael Peacock, last April after finding him in the basement where another woman was soaking in a hot tub. The fight escalated and Michael Peacock was shot.
