Woman gets 15 years for killing husband
By Associated Press

A woman who fatally shot her husband in the head as he slept has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

61-year-old Donna Sciglitano was sentenced Thursday in Superior Court. She pleaded no contest in August to second-degree murder in the death of 59-year-old Nino Sciglitano Sr. on Sept. 15, 2011 in their Brandywine Hundred home.

The News Journal reports that at sentencing, Sciglitano's lawyer said the woman suffered from several undiagnosed mental conditions and was a battered spouse.

But Nino Sciglitano's sister Donna Fragale said in court that Donna Sciglitano was manipulative and evil.
