Woman acquitted of murdering husband still in jail

The Queens woman acquited on charges she murdered her ex-cop husband will spend the rest of the weekend on Rikers Island.

An attorney for Barbara Sheehan says a court appearance on Monday is scheduled to work out the details of her bail.

While a jury didn't convict Sheehan of murder, they did convict her on weapons charges. She is awaiting sentencing.

Her attorney says his client is a wreck, and he is concerned about her mental state.

Sheehan was found not guilty of shooting her husband to death in their Queens home after the jury decided she acted in self-defense after years of abuse.
