CROWN POINT, Ind. (WLUC) - Kelly Cochran, who is already serving life in prison for killing an Iron River man has been sentenced to 65 years in prison in the strangulation death of her husband at their Hobart, Indiana home.

Cochran was sentenced Wednesday morning in the Feb. 20, 2016, death of Jason Cochran after earlier pleading guilty to murder and strangulation.

The 35-year-old is already serving life in prison for the 2014 killing of Chris Regan in Iron River, Michigan.

Documents say Kelly Cochran told investigators she killed her husband because he took "the only good thing" in her life in Regan's death.

Michigan prosecutors maintained she lured Regan to her home, where Jason Cochran shot Regan and then helped dismember him and hide his remains in the woods.

An upcoming documentary called “Dead North" explores other possible murders that may be linked to Cochran. Cochran’s family told investigators she may have killed as many as nine people and buried their bodies throughout the Midwest.

The documentary is set to air May 28 and May 29 on Investigation Discovery.

Her friends and family also told investigators that Cochran allegedly served Regan’s remains to her neighbors at a barbecue.
