Stoldt, 42, was convicted in the April 2013 killing of James Scheaffer.


(WFTV – Channel 9) DAYTONA BEACH – A Florida woman accused of cooking her neighbor after strangling and dismembering him has been sentenced to life in prison.

A Volusia County judge sentence 42-year-old Angela Stoldt on Friday. She was previously convicted of first-degree murder.

Authorities say Stoldt tried to cremate 36-year-old James Sheaffer’s body in April 2013 by putting several body parts in an oven and in pots on the stove. When that didn’t work, she put his body parts in bags and threw them in the trash.

Authorities say Stoldt relied on Sheaffer for money, although their relationship was platonic, and that money was the motive for the murder.

Stoldt said she killed Sheaffer in self-defense.
