MARYSVILLE, Ohio -

Claudia Hoerig is now at the place she'll be calling home for at least the next 25 years after being convicted of murdering her husband in their Newton Falls home.

Hoerig, 54, had a new mugshot taken as she was booked into the sprawling Ohio Reformatory for Women Complex in Marysville, Ohio.

She was sentenced on Friday to life in prison for fatally shooting her husband, Air Force Major Karl Hoerig in 2007.

It remains to be seen if Hoerig will continue a letter-writing campaign that began in Trumbull County Jail where she protested conditions at the lockup and made allegations of misconduct on the part of those prosecuting her case.

Hoerig's letters were posted on the federal court docket before two judges ruled that her filings would not be accepted unless they were related to a notice of appeal.

Just last week on the day Hoerig was being sentenced, U.S. District Court Judge Aaron Polster denied her petition alleging prosecutorial misconduct.

In doing so, Judge Polster also banned her from filing new motions.

“Given Hoerig's proclivity for such improper and frivolous filings the Court hereby deems Claudia C. Hoerig a vexatious litigator and enjoins her from filing any new motions, objections, notices or any other filings in this case,” wrote Judge Polster in his order.

According to prison records, the 54-year-old inmate will be eligible for her first parole hearing in February 2044 when she'll be 79-years-old.
