MEDFORD, Ore. — A Medford woman will be tried in the murder of her husband, whose body was discovered at the base of cliff in Northern California last November.

A Siskiyou County, Calif. judge ruled there is enough evidence to try Patricia MacCallum in the murder of Michael MacCallum. She faces a sentence of 25 years to life if convicted.

Police determined that Michael MacCallum died of a gunshot wound. His wife and her stepsister, Amber Lubbers, were arrested Dec. 7.

Lubbers pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of being an accessory after the fact. She testified at Patricia MacCallum’s hearing on Friday.
