HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama woman has received a life sentence for helping her husband plan the 2015 killings of his estranged pregnant wife, her unborn child and three others.

Forty-eight-year-old Rhonda Carlson avoided the death penalty in a deal with prosecutors in exchange for testifying against her husband, Christopher Henderson, prior to his trial.

She admitted to helping plan the attack but denied participating in the slayings. She was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Henderson was convicted in July and sentenced to death earlier this month.
