SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) – A 61-year-old southwest Missouri woman has been sentenced to life in prison for an ambush-style shooting of her former daughter-in-law.
Angaline Ryan, of West Plains, was sentenced Tuesday for the April 2015 attack on Tammy Hatchcock in their shared driveway.
Ryan was found guilty in December of first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
Hathcock was in the midst of a bitter divorce with Ryan’s son when the attack occurred. The couple was due in court the week of the attack.
Hatchcock was director of Drury University’s campuses in Thayer and West Plains. She eventually recovered from several gunshot wounds, changed her name and moved away after the divorce.
