CONCH KEY, Fla (WTVJ)—A Florida woman who is known as the “sea hag” has been sentenced to prison after shooting and killing her neighbor over a beer.

Carolyn Dukeshire, 62, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for the death of 64-year-old Martin Mazur.

Authorities say Dukeshire went to her neighbor’s home and asked him for a can of Busch Light.

When he responded “I have absolutely nothing for you,” she shot him five times.

Mazur later died at the hospital.

Dukeshire, who was facing a first-degree murder charge made a deal with prosecutors, submitted a statement saying she was sorry and would pay the rest of her life for losing her composure.
