(Scroll down for video) A good-looking woman is off the streets after a jury found her guilty of killing her former husband.
Tracey Grissom claimed that she was a battered woman, and she feared for her life when she killed the man.
Tracey killed her former husband Hunter Grissom, at a Binion Creek boat landing in broad daylight after she claimed that he approached her and threatened her life.
She shot and killed him in self defense. However, a judge did not allow the jury to hear about the man’s previous arrest for sexually assaulting Tracey.
Prosecutors told the jury that Tracey killed her former husband for his insurance money of $103,000. Unaware of the domestic abuse situation, the jury convicted the woman. She faces 25 years to life in prison.
Before sentencing Tracey, she was finally given a chance to tell her side of the story. She showed the court photos of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband.
Tracey reportedly needed surgery after she was forcefully raped by her husband.
Now, she was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the crime. One juror felt that Tracey did not get a fair trial because they were not informed of her domestic abuse history.
“I didn’t think it was a fair trial. I didn’t think it was right,” juror Janice Kelley said. “I have been abused and I know what it is like,” she said after sentencing.
Tracey’s lawyer will appeal the case.
