A Northeast Kingdom woman admitted she intentionally crashed her car to kill her husband.
45 year old Christine Billis pleaded guilty to manslaughter and will serve 7 to 15 years in prison.
Billis was originally charged with first-degree murder and faced up to life in prison without parole.
Police say she was driving the family car with her husband in it when it went off Route 5A in Charleston three years ago and hit a tree. Police always had suspicions about whether it was really an accident.
They recently got a break in the case when a friend of Billis taped incriminating conversations the two had about the crash.
