Baltimore County woman gets 60 years in husband's murder

A Dundalk woman who admitted to arranging her husband's murder two years ago was sentenced Monday to 60 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Jaclyn Martin gave her brother money to buy the gun with which he shot Lee Martin outside his Dundalk bar early on May 22, 2010.

Jaclyn Martin and her brother, Robert Garner, both pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the scheme. Garner had previously been sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Jaclyn Martin called her husband at the Hops Inn on Railway Avenue just before he stepped out of the bar. They say Garner, with the help of two others, ambushed and shot Lee Martin as he was walking to his house next to the bar.

Brandon Roth, who drove the getaway car, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and was sentenced to 20 years with all but seven suspended. Sturm Davis pleaded guilty to armed robbery and use of a handgun in the commission of a violent crime and was sentenced to 30 years with all but 10 suspended.
