A 63-year-old woman convicted of killing her husband in the kitchen of their Logan County home earlier this year is set for sentencing this morning, according to court records.

Rosalie Kennedy, of Rushsylvania, was convicted of murder and felonious assault, both with gun specifications, by a jury last month in connection with the shooting death of Gary Kennedy. She faces up to a maximum sentence of life in prison.
