TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

A West Alabama woman convicted of gunning down her ex-husband in 2012 will be sentenced on Tuesday, Sept. 2.

In early August, it took a Tuscaloosa jury about an hour and a half to convict Tracey Grissom of shooting and killing her ex-husband, Hunter, at the Binon Creek boat landing.

During the week-long trial, prosecutors said the case is all about insurance money Tracey planned to collect after Hunters death. But Grissom's defense team said she shot Hunter in self defense because Tracey said Hunter was approaching the car in a threatening manner.

Grissom's attorney also argued she suffers from post traumatic stress disorder after her ex-husband allegedly abused her in 2010. But that case never made it to trial.

A judge will hand down Grissom's sentence for murder on Tuesday at 2 p.m. We're told she could receive 10 years to life in prison.
