EDINBURG - A jury sentenced a woman to 20 years behind bars for her role in a murder case dating back to 2010.
Guadalupe de Leon Acuña was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder in the death of her former boyfriend Jose Guadalupe Fiscal. Authorities discovered the victim's body near Donna Lake. Fiscal was stabbed and set on fire.
De Leon was previously tried on a murder charge in the case. A jury found her not guilty. It was then that prosecutors filed charges of conspiracy to commit murder.
Prosecutors claim De Leon wanted Fiscal murdered because she wanted to end their relationship.
De Leon's son, Antonio Rodriguez, already is serving a 99-year prison sentence for his role in the killing.
De Leon will be eligible for parole in five years.
