Sheeder on Thursday was sentenced to life in prison in connection with the 2018 death of 38-year-old Jeremy McDowell in Newton.

The sentencing came after her attorney's motion for a new trial was overruled, court records show. Dean Stowers, Sheeder's lawyer, said a new trial was needed for multiple reasons, which include allegations of inappropriate questioning of witnesses by a prosecutor during the trial and the allegation that her last counsel was ineffective. Stowers replaced a public defender in the case. The motion was resisted by the state and denied by the court Thursday. Sheeder was also sentenced to 25 years in prison for first-degree robbery and two years in prison for being an accessory to murder after the crime.
