A Kansas woman has been sentenced to life in prison for killing her estranged husband more than three years ago. The Kansas City Star reports that 54-year-old Barbara Frantz was sentenced Tuesday and will serve at least 25 years before she is eligible for parole. Leavenworth County prosecutors say Frantz shot Gary Frantz five times on Jan. 27, 2017. Police found him gravely wounded in a parking lot in downtown Leavenworth. Police say that before he died, he told officers his wife had shot him, and investigators found shell casings in her apartment that matched ones found at the shooting scene.
