46-year-old Leah Benjamin of Buffalo was sentenced to 20 to 30 years this week by 4th Judicial District Court Judge John Fenn. Benjamin was found guilty in late January for the 2nd Degree Murder of her estranged husband Donald Benjamin. The murder occurred during the early morning hours of May 3, 2009, when Leah lured Donald to her home under false pretenses and fatally shot him three times. Judge Fenn declined the request for restitution to be paid to Donald Benjamin's family, and told Leah that she can appeal the case to the Wyoming Supreme Court 30 days after the sentence is filed.
