Angelica Castillo

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) An Elkhart woman has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for the murder of her husband.

Our reporting partners at The Goshen News say 40-year-old Angelica Castillo's prison sentence is part of an agreement in which she pleaded guilty last month to shooting and killing Elder Castillo Sr. at their home on Hiawatha Drive in May 2018.

His body was found a few weeks later wrapped in layers of materials.

Investigators say Angelica cashed out much of a bank account in her husband's name and tried to withdraw funds from his retirement account, and then spent the money at casinos in different states.

She was arrested following a traffic stop in Georgia back in August.
