Woman gets jail time for killing boyfriend
A 32-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the shooting death of her boyfriend.
Connie Reeb was sentenced to 10 years, with five years suspended on Tuesday.
After she leaves prison, she must also serve three years of active probation.
Reeb was initially booked with second-degree murder in the shooting death of her boyfriend, Ralph
Brossette, in the Violet home they shared.
Reeb, who had been living with Brossette for around six months at the time of the Nov. 24, 2008, homicide, told investigators that Brossette abused and threatened her and her two children.
Authorities say Reeb, who is pregnant, will report to prison after the birth of her child.
