FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) -- Linda Decker, 69, is starting a 45-year prison sentence for the murder of her great aunt, Betty Wann.
On Monday, a judge in Clinton County accepted Decker's plea agreement.
In the agreement, prosecutors accepted a minumum sentence of 45 years. The advisory sentence for this charge is 55.
The murder happened in September of 2016 at Wann's home on South Third Street in Frankfort.
An autospy showed Wann died from sharp, blunt force injuries to her head, face, chest and neck.
A trail of blood led police from the victim's home to Decker's washing machine and then to a couch where she slept next door.
Police say Decker told them she must have done it after they found scratches on her body, bloody clothes, gloves and other DNA
evidence linking her to Wann's death.
Police found a ledger showing Decker owed Wann thousands of dollars.
Decker is also a beneficiary in Wann's will.
She's required to serve at least 75 percent of the 45 year prison sentence.
