CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A 71-year-old Cape Girardeau man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for killing his wife in 2019.
Police say Timothy Edward Corrigan shot and killed 64-year-old Katheia Corrigan at their Cape Girardeau home on April 5, 2019.
Corrigan pleaded guilty in June to second-degree murder and armed criminal action. He was sentenced on Friday to 30 years on both counts, with the sentences to run consecutively.
Corrigan was originally charged with first-degree murder.
Prosecutors said he called Cape Girardeau police the night his wife died and admitted shooting her.
