A US woman has been sentenced to life in prison for killing a mentally disabled man.

Apparently as part of a complicated plot to divert attention from an unsolved homicide from several years earlier.

Sixty-year-old Pamela Hupp of the St Louis suburb of O’Fallon, entered an Alford plea in June on a first-degree murder charge in the 2016 death of 33-year-old Louis Gumpenberger.

The plea wasn’t an admission of the crime but conceded that evidence existed for a conviction.

Hupp claimed she killed Gumpenberger in self-defence when he tried to kidnap her on August 16, 2016.

In reality, St Charles Prosecuting Attorney Tim Lohmar said, Hupp killed Gumpenberger to distract from the re-investigation of her friend Betsy Faria’s 2011 death.
