Woman Who Ignited, Killed Husband To Serve 20 Years

A Norwalk woman will spend 20 years in prison after throwing gasoline on her husband and igniting it because she thought he was cheating. 

Mary Ann Langley, 59, was convicted in October of manslaughter but acquitted of a murder charge. Her husband, James, died of burns 12 days after the fire on Dec. 14, 2006.

She was sentenced Tuesday in Stamford Superior Court. Her attorney and supporters believe James Langley accidentally caused the fire during a daze brought on by his unregulated diabetes.

She is appealing her conviction.
