Woman Convicted In Husband's Murder

Posted: Updated:

A woman accused in the death of her husband, a Mayes County volunteer firefighter, has been convicted of first-degree murder.

The jury found 46-year-old Wendy Cobb guilty Tuesday. Cobb's husband, Michael, was found dead inside their burned out home near Pryor in April 2009.

Investigators say the home was intentionally burned down. They say Cobb convinced her boyfriend, Nicholas Shires, to kill her husband.

Shires confessed to the crime earlier this year and was sentenced to 22 years in prison.

The jury has recommended Cobb be sentenced to life in prison. She would have to serve at least 85 percent of her sentence -- or about 38 years -- before becoming eligible for parole.
