Man who killed his wife gets 10 years

Man who killed his wife gets 10 years

A man who shot and killed his wife at her lover's house has been found guilty of murder and jailed for 10 years by a court in Neuchatel.

The defense argued that it was a crime of passion by a man deeply in love and profoundly hurt by her infidelity.

This was dismissed after revelations about death threats and a psychiatric report showing he had excellent control of his emotions.

The retired man in his 70s was 20 years older than his wife, who he shot with a revolver after discovering her at her lover's house in September 2015.
