(AP) A Colorado woman who married an Algerian terror suspect and helped support his jihadist training has been sentenced in Philadelphia to eight years in prison.


Jamie Paulin-Ramirez is getting a break after helping the FBI investigate her husband and others, including a Pennsylvania woman who called herself "Jihad Jane."


Prosecutors sought a 10-year term because Paulin-Ramirez took her 6-year-old son to Ireland, where he endured physical abuse and was trained to be a warrior and kill non-Muslims.


A defense lawyer says the Leadville, Colo., woman had a troubled life before she fled to Ireland in 2009 to marry Ali Charaf Damache, whom she met online.


Damache is in custody in Ireland, fighting extradition.


Colleen LaRose, who called herself "Jihad Jane," was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison.
