An Evansville woman who was originally facing murder charges was sentenced today.

Wendy Payne was sentenced to five years for reckless homicide after stabbing her husband, 60-year-old Edward Payne, back in the summer of 2019.

The courts did find a pattern of abuse and alcoholism that lead Payne to defend herself, which lessened the charge.

After a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
