LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock woman charged with killing her ex-husband has now pleaded guilty to murder. A judge sentenced Patricia Dennis to 45 years Monday morning.
Jury selection for Dennis' capital murder trial was scheduled to begin Monday, after she rejected a plea agreement on Friday.
Dennis had been out on a $250,000 bond prior to Friday's court appearance, but, a judge ordered her back to jail on a $1 million bond after she rejected the plea.
Dennis shot and killed Tracy Dennis at his Saddle Club Estates home in February of last year.
Authorities say she then shot herself.
