A Steuben County woman found guilty in August of all 7 counts she faced in connection with the murder of a 60 year old Wayland man was sentenced to 23 years to life in prison this week.
Iryn Meyers was found guilty of second-degree murder, two counts of arson, along with insurance fraud, attempted insurance fraud, conspiracy and making a false written statement. She was also sentenced 20 years to life on each of the arson counts, and terms ranging from one-and-a-third years to seven years on the lesser charges. The sentences will run concurrently.
Prosecutors say Meyers and her husband Joseph Meyers were looking to collect on a 140-thousand dollar insurance policy taken out on 60 year old David O’Dell when they set his house on fire back in February of 2016. O’Dell worked for Joseph Meyers, who was found guilty on similar charges back in May. He was sentenced to 23 years to life in prison.
