A vigil is being held tonight for a Queens woman who was convicted on a gun charge in connection with her husband's death.
Friends and family will gather in support of Barbara Sheehan at Our Lady of Grace Parish in Howard Beach.
Sheehan is awaiting her November sentencing from behind bars after turning herself in last week.
She says she killed her husband, a former New York City Police Department sergeant, in self-defense after years of abuse.
Sheehan was acquitted of murder but faces up to 15 years in prison for the gun charge.
