CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Jurors in Cheyenne are set to begin deliberating in the trial of a 75-year-old Missouri woman accused of killing her husband in Wyoming in the mid-1970s.

Alice Uden, of Chadwick, Missouri, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Ronald Holtz. Jurors heard closing arguments Tuesday and the judge dismissed them for the day after they got the case Tuesday evening.

Uden testified she shot her 24-year-old husband at their Cheyenne home to stop Holtz as he was set to attack her 2-year-old daughter.

Prosecutors say Uden shot her husband as he slept.

Police arrested Uden and 71-year-old Gerald Uden in September. Gerald Uden has pleaded guilty to murdering his ex-wife and her two children in central Wyoming in 1980.

Prosecutors haven't linked the two cases.
