Cottondale Man Gets Life for Killing Wife

A judge decided Tuesday, a Cottondale man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing his wife.

A Florida jury took less than an hour to convict Leroy Taylor.

Prosecutors say Taylor shot his wife of 20-years because he believed she was cheating on him.

The defense claimed Taylor was trying to scare his wife and the gun accidentally went off.

Judge William Wright sentenced Taylor to life in prison without parole.

Prosecutors chose not seek the death penalty in the case.
