STROUDSBURG -- A woman will spend the rest of her life behind bars for a murder in Luzerne County.

Stacy Britton was sentenced Friday morning in Monroe County court to life in prison. She was convicted in November.

Britton and her husband James were convicted of killing Robert Roudebush inside his home in Wilkes-Barre in 2002. The pair then cut up his body and burned it on a property in Monroe County.

James Britton pleaded guilty last year to third-degree murder and was sentenced to 15 to 30 years in prison.

    In the video, she’s walking through the courthouse with her head held high, like she’s just taking a tour of the building, with no apparent signs of remorse, sorrow, self-loathing and regret.

      you obviously are clueless.
      you think this is an american only trait?!
      go live in congo,columbia or turkey.
      humans all over the world are mentally diseased.
      animals dont in such ways.
      we can evolve technologically at lightspeed yet socially,spiritually and emotionally our evolution is null.

        Our country has all the same barbaric crime that other countries have, only in America people are taught to behave more civil (though I’m not sure about this any more), and blend in with society, which makes it harder to know who your neighbor “really” is. We have to pay attention to what’s going on around us at all times. No need to be paranoid, just OBSERVANT…there is a difference.

    How on earth can humans do this to another human!!!! They have to be possessed with pure evil.
    No one in their right mind could ever do something so horrible.
    I wish this state gave the death penalty to scum like this…they do not deserve to breathe!!!!!
