The wife of a Ku Klux Klan leader admits to shooting him dead two years ago

The wife of a Ku Klux Klan leader in the US state of Missouri has admitted shooting him dead two years ago.

Malissa Ancona, 47, was sentenced to life after pleading guilty to second-degree murder and other charges.

She had initially said her son, Paul Jinkerson, carried out the killing but in court on Friday 19th April said this was not the case. He still faces trial.

Frank Ancona, a self-styled "imperial wizard", was shot dead in a bedroom and his body dumped next to a river.
