Veterinarian Pleads No Contest to Killing Husband

By  | 

A veterinarian charged with killing her airman husband with drugs used to euthanize animals pleaded no contest in San Angelo.

A judge then found Wendi Mae Davidson guilty and sentenced her to 25 years in prison on the murder charge.

Davidson will get ten years in prison on each of two evidence-tampering charges in the death of 24-year-old Dyess Air Force Base Staff Sergeant Michael Leslie Severance.

The San Angelo Standard-Times reports the plea agreement says the sentences will run concurrently.

Davidson will be eligible for parole in about 13 years.

Severance's body, which had been stabbed dozens of times and weighted down with an anchor and a cinder block, was found in March of 2005 in a Tom Green County stock pond.

Two months earlier Davidson reported her spouse missing. She filed for divorce the next day.
