      Toledo woman's murder sentence is the same as victim's age

      Melody Williams

      A Toledo woman has been sentenced to 59 years in prison for killing a Sylvania Township man and then setting his home on fire to cover up the crime.

      49-year-old Melody Williams was convicted last Friday in the fatal shooting of 59-year-old LC Lyons, Jr. at his home on July 4th, 2011.

      Williams, who served as her own attorney during her trial, will be eligible for parole after 30 years.
