Update: Plea agreement made in UAH Professor slaying

Shonda Moody, the woman accused of helping to murder a former UAH art professor, made a plea agreement with Madison County prosecutors this afternoon.

As part of the deal, Moody was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the shooting death of 75 year old Jack Dempsey.

Dempsey was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head inside his Meridianville home back in 2003.

Authorities later arrested Moody along with Terry Kelly.

Kelly was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Today, Moody was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but she'll be eligible for parole after serving only four years behind bars.

WAFF 48 News will have more on this story tonight.
