A woman who poisoned her former boyfriend’s oatmeal and strangled him with his tie over the custody of their child, has been sentenced to 115 years in prison.
Heidi Marie Littlefield, 42, was found guilty of murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder, during a seven-day trial in Hamilton County, Indiana, US.
Francis Kelley’s body was found in January 2021, and the prosecution said he had been strangled while acute fentanyl intoxication was listed as a contributing factor to his death.
Mr Kelley’s mobile and iPad had text messages which showed that Heidi Littlefield had been to his home in the days before he was found dead, it is reported.
“The two were in the middle of a custody battle regarding their two-year-old child in common,” the affidavit said.
