In Panama City Tuesday, a Canadian woman got more than 21 years in prison for her part in the beating death of her husband, who was an officer in Canada's Air Force.

Monique Turenne was accused of playing a role in the murder along with retired U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant Ralph Compton who was described by investigators as being her lover.

Turenne got 21 years and eight months. She had been charged with first-degree murder, but her jury convicted her instead of second-degree murder.

Compton drew a life sentence.
