'Ice cream' murder woman gets life sentence in Austria

Help

A court in Vienna has sentenced a woman to life in prison for murdering her ex-husband and her lover and hiding the bodies in her ice cream shop.

Estibaliz Carranza, 34, fatally shot her ex-husband in 2008, and killed her lover while he slept two years later.

Carranza, who has joint Spanish-Mexican citizenship, will now be held in a secure mental institution.
