(Scroll down for video) An evil woman was sentenced to life in prison without parole after she used her stepson to kill his own father.
Judith Hawkey of Oakwood, Ohio, 46, was married to Robert Breininger, 34, when he was found dead in his bedroom from a single gunshot wound to the head.
During the investigation, police found that the man was shot by his 10-year-old son, Corey Breininger.
The death was ruled an accident, and Hawkey received about $500,000 from her husband’s life insurance.
However, the young boy, who according to authorities has been tortured and abused by his stepmother for more than three years when he was between the ages of 7 and 10, held a dark secret.
Ten years after his father’s death, Corey Breininger couldn’t hold the secret any longer.
He went to authorities and told them that his stepmother, a former teacher, forced him to kill his father.
Investigators reopened the case, and evidence corroborated his story. Hawkey was arrested for murder.
The judge told the woman that she is a very evil person.
Hawkey was convicted of aggravated murder, four counts of endangering a child and insurance fraud.
She was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
