Fort Wood soldier to serve 25 years for shooting husband

Former Fort Leonard Wood soldier Stacy Lynn Powell has avoided a murder trial for shooting her estranged husband to death by pleading guilty to manslaughter.

Powell shot her husband in 2008 in Dixon. She’s been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Powell was an army staff sergeant at the time but was given a dishonorable discharge in the wake of the killing.
