The wife, A woman who was recently convicted in the United States for hiring a hitman to kill her Jamaican husband, has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, the US media has reported.

The hitman received a similar sentence.

The wife, Alishia Noel-Murray, 29, and Kirk Portious, 27, were sentenced on Thursday in the Brooklyn Supreme Court in the state of New York. This was after they were convicted in separate trials earlier this year.

In court, the prosecutor said Noel-Murray wanted to cash in on a US$900,000 insurance payout from three policies on the life of her husband, Omar Murray.

The reports indicated that Noel-Murray said nothing and only rolled her eyes at times, while relatives of her husband spoke during her sentencing hearing.

"She continues to maintain her innocence," her attorney was quoted as saying.

But for her husband's family members, the sentence was satisfying.

"Alishia, you can spend the next 900,000 years in prison, one for each dollar you thought you’d get for my son’s life," the New York Daily News quoted Omar Murray’s cousin, Nicole Barten, as saying in a letter she read on behalf of his mother, Eunice Ashley Henry.

"Our family is moving on, but you will always think of us," Barten added.

The evidence before that court was that on February 24, 2013, the Omar Murray was shot three times by Portious inside the Brooklyn home he shared with his wife and 10-month-old child.

Prosecutors cited the fatal incident as the third attempt by Noel-Murray to kill her husband, with two other attempts having failed before.

In October 2012, Noel-Murray reportedly tried to poison her husband's dinner after she found out that he had cheated on her with a prostitute.

After surviving the dinner with intense medical assistance, gunmen later opened fire on the Jamaican near his home, but missed.

After both attempts failed, prosecutors said Noel-Murray asked her lover, Dameon Lovell, to hire a hitman, indicating that she stood to collect US$900,000 from the insurance policies she had taken out on her husband's life.

Portious agreed to the scheme for a payment of US$3,500, with a down payment of $500..

Lovell, 33, testified in court against both Noel-Murray and Portious, in exchange for a sentence of 15 years to life in prison.
