A Kentucky woman who told police she shot her again, and again friend and gave him the “nose job he wanted to” found guilty in the death for the second time.

Shayna Hubers, 27, who argued the shooting was self-defense, was convicted Tuesday of fatally shooting Ryan Poston, 29 October 2012.

Hubers was first convicted of murder for the killing in 2015, and sentenced to 40 years, but it was overturned in August 2016, when a juror was discovered to be a convicted felon. Kentucky prohibits convicted criminals sit on juries.

On Wednesday, a jury recommended a life sentence for Hubers a day after she was convicted for a second time, ABC News reported.

Her first chance at parole will be after 20 years, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

Poston, a lawyer, was found dead in his home in Highland Heights, Ky. The prosecutors said Poston was planning to break up with Hubers on the night of his death. Hubers claimed Poston abused her during their relationship and she shot him in self-defense.

“I killed my friend in self-defense,” Hubers told a 911 dispatcher. They claimed that they had a fight that night an altercation occurred.

“He threw me in the room,” Hubers said in the 911 call. “I killed him.”

Shayna Hubers officers told they gave Ryan Poston, the “nose job that he wanted.”

The courtroom was showed images of Hubers talk with officials of the Highland Heights police station. The video also showed her dancing and she was made to hear with the singing of “Amazing Grace” and asking if she could call her mother, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

“He is very vain. One of our last conversations that we had that was good was that he wants to get a nose job,” Hubers told the police. “And I shot him here. I gave him the nose job he wanted. I broke.”

The Poston family released a statement to ABC News with regard to the decision of the jury.

“Who loves Ryan to proceed with the integrity, the dignity and the kindness that Ryan demonstrated in his entire life,” the family said. “Today we embrace justice, and yet we have not the feeling of joy. It has been six long and agonizing years without our beloved Ryan.”
