WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A woman who killed a 67-year-old Wichita man who was discovered dead on his birthday has been sentenced to 20.5 years in prison.
Friends who went to John Gaffney’s home on July 7 to take him to a birthday dinner found him dead.
The Wichita Eagle reports 54-year-old Sherry Wedel of Wichita was arrested six weeks after Gaffney was killed. She pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in November.
She was sentenced earlier this week.
Court records say Wedel shot Gaffney with a handgun sometime between July 6 and July 7.
