A jury has convicted a wife accused of killing her husband, chopping up his body with an ax, and making her children help her hide the body.

Thessalonica Allen, 36, was convicted of murdering Randy Allen in their La Porte, Indiana apartment in August 2021. As Law&Crime previously reported, Allen was believed to have fatally shot her husband while her two children, both of whom were identified as being under the age of 16 at the time, were inside the home.

After deliberating for less than 30 minutes, the jury convicted Thessalonica Allen of eight counts: murder, abuse of a corpse, altering a crime scene, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and two counts of neglect of a dependent — all felonies — and a misdemeanor count of interference with the reporting of a crime, local CBS affiliate WSBT reported.

She faces between 45 and 60 years for the murder conviction.
