A Monroe, Wisconsin, woman has been sentenced to seven years in prison in the shooting death of her fiancé who was just a week away from graduating with an engineering degree.
Meghan Werner was sentenced Friday for a reduced charge of involuntary manslaughter in the December 2015 killing of 22-year-old Curt Marzolf in the home they shared in Rolla. She originally was charged with second-degree murder.
The couple were students at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla.
Court records say Werner, who hunted, initially told police that Marzolf committed suicide. She was arrested after investigators found signs of a struggle in the house and blood on her.
Werner is from the St. Louis suburb of Fenton. He had a job waiting for him in Kansas City after graduation.
