Iowa woman sentenced in husband's death

BOONE (KWWL) - A Boone County judge has sentenced a Boone woman to 50 years in prison for her involvement in her husband's killing.  District Court Judge Dale Ruigh imposed the maximum sentence Friday on Jessica Hill, who was convicted last fall of second-degree murder in the 2007 shooting death of her husband, Shane Hill.  Jessica Hill's trial -- the third in the highly publicized case -- was held in Pottawatamie County on a change of venue.  Jessica Hill had admitted to having an affair with Daniel Blair. Blair was convicted of first-degree murder in the case in 2008. Another man, Aaron Moss was convicted of second-degree murder for his involvement.  Ruigh said Jessica Hill must serve 35 years of her sentence before she'll be eligible for parole.
