October 31st, 2023 by WCBC Radio

A Bedford County woman will spend the rest of her life behind bars with no parole.  Pennsylvania Attorney General Michelle Henry announced the sentencing of 76-year-old Nancy Focht who was found guilty in September of murdering her husband, shooting him in a shed on their property in Claysburg.  Focht had changed her story about what happened several times since her arrest in 2018, including during her trial.  Jurors also found her guilty of tampering with evidence.
