Montco woman gets prison in bigamist spouse's murder
by Patrick Walters
A Montgomery County woman was sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison on Wednesday for killing her bigamist husband as he was set to travel to Africa to impregnate his second Muslim wife.
Myra Morton, 48, tearfully apologized to the mother of victim Jereleigh Morton during the sentencing hearing.
She had pleaded guilty in April to third-degree murder for fatally shooting her husband of 25 years as he slept in their Blue Bell home. When he was slain last August, he was about to fly to Morocco to impregnate his younger second wife.
