Woman gets 30 years for shooting husband, then herself

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Lexington County woman convicted of killing her estranged husband was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years in prison without parole.

It only took a few days for a jury to convict Shellie Davis, 41, of killing her estranged husband back in September 2011. The jury announced the conviction Friday.

Davis was sentenced Wednesday morning.

Investigators said Davis shot and killed Jermaine Davis in September 2010 at an apartment complex in West Columbia.

After the shooting, Davis drove to a friend's home near Charlotte and shot herself in the head. She survived, but was in critical condition for several days.

The couple had five children together.
