A Cary woman accused of strangling her husband is now out of jail and on probation.

On May 8, 2013, then 61-year-old Dottie Amtey told police she strangled her ailing, 77-year-old husband, Sharad Amtey inside their home on Carbon Hill Court.

Amtey was initially jailed on a charge of second-degree murder.
