TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas prosecutor will seek a sentence of
50 years in prison without parole for an Oklahoma woman convicted
of killing her ex-husband and his fiancee at a Topeka home.
Fifty-two-year-old Dana Chandler, of Duncan, Okla., was
convicted last month on two counts of premeditated murder. A jury
deliberated just 83 minutes before finding her guilty in the July
2002 shootings of her ex-husband, 47-year-old Michael Sisco, and
his 53-year-old fiancee, Karen Harkness.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/HOgKTZ ) the
Shawnee County district attorney's office filed notice Monday that
it intends to seek the so-called ``Hard 50'' sentence for each
murder count. The sentence would require Chandler to serve 50 years
before going before the parole board.
Chandler is scheduled to be sentenced June 1 in Shawnee County
