Posted November 12, 2018 04:19:04 A Florida woman was sentenced to more than seven years in prison on Wednesday for stabbing her husband to deaths.
Marisa Lueck, 41, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and attempted second-time murder.
Her trial in March began after Luecks mother, who had been hospitalized with pneumonia, became unresponsive.
Her husband, Keith Luecking, was stabbed to death in April.
Luecks attorney said her behavior during the attack was consistent with someone who was depressed and suffering from depression.
He said the couple had been separated for nearly a year.
Keith Luecki said in court that his wife had become paranoid and paranoid and told him to get away from her.
Luescck said she had been in a relationship with Keith Luedck for three years, and they had a two-year-old child together.
The defense attorney asked the judge for the maximum sentence of 10 years in state prison and a $150,000 fine.
The prosecution had asked for a prison sentence of five years, saying that Lueks behavior was likely the result of depression and was not a result of self-defense.LUEcks attorney argued for the lesser sentence because she was a high-risk inmate.
The judge agreed with that argument, and the judge sentenced Luecko to eight years in a medium-security prison.
