Independence Woman Sentenced for Murdering Ex-Husband

An Independence woman has been sentenced to prison for murdering her ex-husband.

34-year old Hillary Hunziker was sentenced to life in prison on Monday.

In December, a jury found her guilty of First Degree Murder. She was convicted of stabbing Jason Hunziker to death in his home northwest of Independence in November 2017.

Both Jason and her child called 911. Hillary took the child and fled. She was tracked down by authorities after they found Jason dead in his home.
