Ironton , Lawrence County , Ohio
The Ohio Fourth District Court of Appeals has upheld the murder conviction of a woman who killed her estranged husband by shooting him several times.
In March 2006, Megan Goff of Lawrence County, Ohio, killed her estranged husband when she shot him 15 times with two handguns. Goff was found guilty of aggravated murder in May 2007.
Goff received a new trial in August 2011 after the Supreme Court of Ohio reversed the previous decision because a witness for the state provided testimony that violated her right against self-incrimination, according to a news release from Lawrence County Prosecutor Brigham Anderson. The jury found her guilty of murder, and she was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 18 years served.
The decision made by the jury was upheld by the Court of Appeals on Monday.
An Ohio woman accused of killing her husband learns her fate in an Ironton courtroom Friday morning.
Megan Goff will spend 15 years to life in prison for the murder of her estranged husband -- Billy Goff back in March of 2006.
That's when she came to his home in Hamilton Township, shot him 15 times, and then called 911 to confess. Domestic violence charges had been filed against Billy Goff and a restraining order was in effect at the time of that deadly shooting.
Megan will get credit for time already served.
