The Morris County prosecutor’s office says 47 year-old Amalia Mirasola of Butler was sentenced Friday to 40 years in state prison.

Mirasola was convicted in January of the 2010 murder of her husband, 43-year-old Carl Mirasola.

The jury also found her guilty of the possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Amalia Mirasola’s attorney had tried to argue his client had acted in self-defense.

Family members had said at the time of the shooting that the couple was planning to end their 19-year-marriage.
