An Horry County woman has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for conspiring with her lover to kill her husband.
Multiple media outlets report that 54-year-old Sherry Engel was sentenced in Conway Wednesday after pleading guilty to accessory before the fact of voluntary manslaughter.
In October, a jury found Timmy Rogers of Leitchfield, Ky., guilty of murder.
Prosecutors say 53-year-old Frederik Engel was strangled with a shoelace in 2008. Rogers was arrested with Sherry Engel in Kentucky two weeks after her husband was found dead after he went to check the mail.
Sherry Engel has testified that she had an affair with Rogers for nearly a year before her husband's death. She said Wednesday Rogers intimidated her into helping him kill her husband.
