Cochran gets 65 years in prison
CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — A woman already serving life in prison for killing a Michigan man has been sentenced to 65 years in prison in the strangulation death of her husband at their northwestern Indiana home.
The Post-Tribune reports Kelly M. Cochran was given her punishment Wednesday in the Feb. 20, 2016, death of Jason Cochran at their Hobart home after earlier pleading guilty to murder and strangulation. The 35-year-old is already serving life for the 2014 killing of Chris Regan in Iron River, Michigan.
Documents say Kelly Cochran told investigators she killed her husband because he took “the only good thing” in her life in Regan’s death. Michigan prosecutors maintained she lured Regan to her home, where Jason Cochran shot Regan and then helped dismember him and hide his remains in the woods.
