Tennessee governor Phil Bredesen has commuted the death sentence of former Bartlett housewife Gaile Owens to life in prison.

Owens was convicted in 1986 of hiring a Memphis man to kill her husband.

Owens' defense team argued the fact that Owens agreed to a plea bargain that was later rescinded — because the co-defendant in her case did not agree — and that Owens was a victim of domestic violence.
