Smiths Station woman sentenced 30 years for murdering husband

(WTVM) - A Smiths Station woman who was found guilty of murdering her husband in 2012 was sentenced to 30 years in prison on June 24. 

Tiffany Andrews, 29, was found guilty of running over her husband, 33-year-old Michael Andrews, by a Lee County jury on May 11 following a week-long trial. Michael was a member of the U.S. Army serving at Fort Benning, Ga. 

Evidence was presented during the trial that the couple had been arguing for days about plans for a divorce, culminating in the murder on July 1, 2012 on Lee Road 248. 

The trial also revealed Tiffany stood to benefit from a $400,000 military insurance policy if her husband died while they were still married. 

"I am pleased that we are able to deliver a measure of justice for this victim who served his country," said Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange. "Tiffany Andrews callously and brutally killed her husband, and she deserves this stern prison sentence for her terrible crime."
