Woman gets life in prison for death of husband

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A judge under fire for releasing a woman convicted of murder in the death of her husband has sentenced her to life in prison.

Pamela Ballin was sentenced Thursday by Judge Mark Anthony Scott, the same judge who released her after a jury convicted her of murdering Derrick "Ricky" Ballin in December 2009.

One day after CBS46 reported that the DeKalb County District Attorney filed an emergency motion for the arrest, Scott issued an order for Pamela Ballin's arrest.

Scott had set Pamela Ballin free while he decided whether to overturn the conviction.

In his order, Scott said the state did not make him aware that Pamela Ballin's bond had expired.
