A Campbellsville woman convicted of killing her husband has lost a chance at freedom.
Tonya Ford, 40, was accused of shooting and killing her husband, Lebanon Police Officer David Ford, on Feb. 10, 2009. She pleaded not guilty in November 2010, but was found guilty during a trial in August 2012. After deliberating for about five minutes, jurors recommended that she spend 20 years in prison for her crime, which she is now serving.
Ford has maintained her innocence and filed an appeal with the Kentucky Supreme Court after she was sentenced.
