Last October Melissa Kennedy from Panama City, Florida was arrested after Bay County sheriff’s deputies found her in a truck outside her home where she had been caring for her boyfriend Clifford Lewis. Lewis had been diagnosed with lung cancer.
An unidentified caller called the police and said that Kennedy killed her boyfriend.
The reason she was arrested was because Lewis had been dead for several days. He didn’t die of cancer though. He died of two gun shots to his body and was starting to decompose.
She accepted a plea deal and will serve the next 40 years in prison.
