A judge has sentenced Teresa Stone to eight years in state prison for her role in the death of her husband.
Stone received the sentence after she filed a guilty plea in late April for conspiracy to commit murder in the death of her husband.
The guilty plea came after Teresa Stone previously pleaded not guilty in the 2010 murder of 42-year-old Randy Stone. Teresa Stone, 39, turned herself in last year after a grand jury indicted her.
Prosecutors said she conspired with David Love, her minister at the time, to kill her husband, who was shot to death in his Noland Road insurance office on March 31, 2010.
Love eulogized Randy Stone at his funeral but was eventually charged with his murder.
The first, real, in-depth details about the affair and murder were given in Friday's sentencing. A lead detective confirmed the affair between Teresa Stone and her former minister, the man now serving a life sentence for the killing of Randy Stone.
The lead detective testified that the affair lasted 10 years and, at one point, Teresa Stone became pregnant with Love's child but suffered a miscarriage. The detective stated that Love had also planned to kill his wife and stage her death as an accident, after which Teresa Stone and Love planned to get married.
The detective read from email exchanges between Teresa Stone and Love that discussed Randy Stone's murder, specifically detailing how they would kill him with one of his own guns.
"One shot to the head would take care of it," the detective read from one of Love's emails.
The detective also said in court that Love sent a message to Teresa Stone on a private, disposable phone the two had used to communicate letting her know that the crime at the insurance office had been done.
"She stepped over his body to retrieve the headset off her desk so that she would be able to make phone calls. She called her mother first, notifying her that Randy had been shot. She hung up with her mother and then she called 911 and she told the dispatcher that Randy had been injured in some way," the detective said as he described the first moments when Teresa Stone found her husband dead.
The detective went on to say that Teresa Stone admitted under oath that she knew when she got to her husband's office that she would find him dead.
Shortly after, Teresa Stone's family members said she and her husband had been fighting about the affair the morning Randy Stone was killed.
A key piece of evidence discussed in Friday's sentencing was a love letter that was torn up and thrown away in the trash can next to Teresa Stone's desk in the insurance office that she shared with her husband. The love letter was a happy birthday letter sent by Love to Teresa Stone talking about his love for her and how he wanted to spend his life with her - something detectives found at the scene and they said led them to conclude this wasn't a random killing.
Stones' children took the stand before her sentencing and tearfully pled for mercy for their mother.
"Losing my dad was extremely hard, but losing my mom would be harder," now 18-year-old Miranda Stone said.
"I just want to ask that you would show her mercy, I love my mom very much," now 21-year-old Michael Stone said.
Neither Teresa Stone nor her family answered reporters' questions after the sentencing, but the prosecution said they were very happy with the outcome and feel justice was served.
Teresa Stone was out on bond prior to sentencing and wouldn't talk with reporters as she left her last court appearance.
According to her plea, prosecutors agreed to limit her prison recommendation to a maximum of 10 years.
