Man Sentenced To 60 Years For Wife's Murder

A Powell County man finds out how long he'll have to spend in prison for killing his wife.

A judge today sentenced Shannon Burgher to 60 years in prison.

But he'll be eligible for parole after serving 85 percent of that sentence.

Prosecutors say Burgher ran his wife Donna off the road then shot her to death.

Last month, a jury found Shannon Burgher guilty of kidnapping and murdering his wife Donna.

The judge followed the jury's recommended sentence.
