Yolanda Saldivar was sentenced Thursday to life in prison by the same jury that convicted her on Monday. The jury deliberated a total of 9 1/2 hours over two days before agreeing on the life sentence. Saldivar must spend at least 30 years in jail and pay a fine of $10,000. She did not face the death penalty because her crime did not contain the aggravating circumstances required for such punishment under Texas law. Saldivar shot Selena after the singer went to a Corpus Christi motel to fire her for embezzling $30,000.
