Woman sentenced to life in love-triangle case

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- A woman convicted of murder in a love-triangle case was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday morning.

Last May, Shanna Goylar was convicted of murdering her romantic rival Cari Farver in 2012.

Tuesday, Goylar asked for a lesser arson sentence and for it to be concurrent to the murder charge.

The judge, however, sentenced her to life for murder, 18-20 years for arson to be served consecutively. She has been in jail for 237 days, which will count toward her sentence.

Family members of Farver tell WOWT 6 News they were relieved and pleased with the verdict.
The case was made by the circumstantial evidence, including a photo, taken by Golyar, appearing to show Farver's decomposing foot.
