In a shocking turn of events, a married woman murdered her longtime lover so that her husband would not find out about her affair, according to police in Florida.

Lakeland police said that they have arrested 59-year-old Victoria Collins, after being accused of killing 65-year-old Gary Greenfield.

In court, Collins has been found guilty of first-degree murder, tampering with physical evidence and petty theft. She was sentenced to life in prison.

According to the police investigation, 40 years ago, Collins and Greenfield became secret lovers. They both lived in New York, and married other people and had children.

Several years ago, Collins and her husband moved to Florida.

Greenfield, who was a truck driver, continued to see Collins every time he drove to Florida. Greenfield eventually divorced and moved to Florida, in order to be near his lover.

One day, Collins feared that her husband would find out about her 40 year long affair with Greenfield, so she decided to kill him.

She wrapped his body in tarp and dumped it in bushes behind a trailer her was renting from her.
