SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A Scottsdale woman will spend the rest of her life in prison for killing her husband, dismembering his body and dropping pieces of it in at least three counties.

Shari Tobyne was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to first-degree murder and other charges related to the death of 57-year-old Dwight Tobyne.

Police say Shari Tobyne shot and killed her husband in 2009. At the time, he was in the process of divorcing her.

Tobyne had used her husband's phone and email accounts to send messages to family and friends, making them think he was alive.

After police opened their investigation, they spotted her putting a garbage bag in a trash bin behind a store. The bag contained a gun and clothing.

Authorities used a DNA profile to match the remains that were found in three Arizona counties to Dwight Tobyne.
