RAPID CITY, SD -
A 60-year-old South Dakota woman accused of shooting her husband has been sentenced to serve about two months in prison.
Evelyn Hunsaker initially was charged with attempted murder in the August 2010 shooting of Michael Hunsaker in their Keystone home, but she pleaded guilty in September to a lesser charge of being an accessory to a felony. She will be on probation for five years.
Michael Hunsaker has maintained that his wife did not shoot him, despite evidence from ballistics experts.
Evelyn Hunsaker also was ordered to complete 500 hours of community service and she must meet several terms of probation, including a mental health evaluation.
