A 52-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of her longtime fiancee. 

Authorities says Mary Lewis shot and killed Arthur Lee Patterson in Jackson back in June 2007.  

The two were engaged in a heated argument over Patterson's 1997 Cadillac.   

Lewis pleaded guilty right before closing arguments after a three day trial in Hinds County Circuit Court. 

She received the maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
