An Ironton woman who shot and killed a man when she was seven months pregnant will spend the next 20 years in prison.

Lawrence County Common Pleas Court Judge Charles Cooper Tuesday sentenced 23-year-old Ashley Seagraves to life in prison.

Seagraves has the possibility for parole after 23 years.

She pleaded guilty Monday to murder, aggravated burglary and tampering with evidence in connection with the murder of 53-year-old Delmar Jenkins.
