Monique Lee was sentenced to life in prison on Tuesday
A Douglas County judge has sentenced Lee to life for killing Karen Jenkins two years ago. Lee was convicted in August of first-degree murder in the October 2010 murder.
Prosecutors say Lee used a vacuum cleaner cord to kill Jenkins, who had evicted Lee. Jenkins' body was found near an abandoned house in north Omaha.
Lee's brother, Gary Lee, was also convicted in the case. Prosecutors have said Gary Lee posed as a prospective renter to lure Jenkins to one of her properties. Investigators say when Jenkins arrived, Monique Lee hit her in the head and strangled her while Gary Lee held her down.
Gary Lee pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in September and was sentenced to 65 to 100 years in prison.
