Gypsy Blanchard, 24, has been convicted of the second-degree murder of her mother and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

She accepted a plea deal to avoid the charge of first-degree murder, which carries with it a life sentence, the Daily Mail reports.

She and her mother, Clauddine, shared a house in Springfield, Kansas, where they were reportedly refugees from Katrina.

Clauddine was found stabbed to death in her bed on June 14, 2015. The alleged killer, 27-year-old Nicholas Godejohn, met Gypsy on the Christian dating website Christian Dating For Free, which bills itself as the largest Christian dating site in the world.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Together, the conspirators hatched the plot to kill Clauddine who, according to Gypsy’s attorney, kept her daughter imprisoned in their home, did not allow her to attend school after kindergarten, and claimed she was disabled in order to defraud the government of benefits.

Taking the abuse into consideration, even Greene County Prosecutor Dan Patterson agreed that the second-degree conviction was the appropriate sentence, in a statement to the News-Leader, reported by the Daily Mail.

Gypsy and Godejohn made it very easy for law enforcement to crack the case by boasting of the murder on Facebook.

Gypsy -- who spells her last name as Blancharde Facebook -- posted, “That B**** is dead!” following the crime.

The next day, she posted: “I f****** SLASHED THAT FAT PIG AND RAPED HER INNOCENT DAUGHTER…HER SCREAM WAS SOOOO F****** LOUD LOL.” The mysterious reference to raping the "innocent daughter" reportedly remains unexplained.

The Facebook posts were easily traced to Godejohn’s computer at his house in Big Bend, Wisconsin, where the conspiring killers were arrested.

According to what Godejohn told police, he considered raping the mother before killing her, but decided not to. As for the knife used in the murder, he mailed it to his home -- a very unorthodox technique of murder-weapon disposal.

When he goes on trial in November, he will face a first-degree murder charge, and is not likely get off as leniently as his accomplice.
