CA woman gets life term for killing ill husband CA woman gets life term for murder of cancer-stricken husband to avoid paying for treatment By The Associated Press

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) ' A woman was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for having her ailing husband murdered to avoid paying for his cancer treatment and to collect his insurance.

Sandra Jessee, 61, was convicted by a jury last year of murder for financial gain and conspiracy in the stabbing death of her husband Jack in 1998.

Prosecutors said Jessee and her son Thomas Aehlert hired a hit man to kill her third husband because she was tired of caring for him. Jessee received more than $650,000 after her husband's murder from the sale of the couple's Placentia home, his 401(k) death benefits and insurance, prosecutors said.
