Attorney Ben Bollinger, who represented Mr. Duke during his trial, told the News Herald of Panama City that Mr. Duke was waiting in the woods for his wife with a rifle, wearing a mask and a bulletproof vest. She confronted him and then tried to leave in a vehicle, and Mr. Duke shot the tires. He said that as part of his sentence, Mr. Duke was required to complete psychological counseling. Mr. Bollinger did not immediately return a phone message from the AP.

“The guy obviously had a death wish,” district spokeswoman Karen Tucker said of Mr. Duke.
