A 48-year-old woman was sentenced Monday to 10 to 25 years in prison for the 2006 murder of her husband.
Stephanie Thomas pleaded guilty Aug. 27 to second-degree murder for her role in the death of Larry Thomas.
Prosecutors said Larry Thomas, a College of Southern Nevada auto technology instructor, planned to leave his wife April 13, 2006, because of her affair with Shawn Pritchett and her use of the couple’s money to support Pritchett’s failing business ventures.
Pritchett attacked Larry Thomas at his home with a baseball bat, authorities said. Pritchett then drove Thomas in his pickup to Mountain Pass, Calif., where he ran over him with the truck, killing him.
Afterward, Pritchett lived with Stephanie Thomas and her children for about two years while Henderson homicide detectives investigated the case.
Pritchett, who was convicted of first-degree murder, armed robbery and conspiracy to commit murder in September, is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Elissa Cadish on Nov. 17.
Pritchett faces a sentence of 20 years to life without the possibility of parole.
