LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 34-year-old Lincoln man has been given life in prison for killing his wife.

Kevin Miller was sentenced on Tuesday in Lancaster County District Court. He’d pleaded no contest and was convicted of first-degree murder and use of a firearm.

Police arrested Miller on Dec. 7, just more than a week after his 28-year-old wife, Kelsey Miller, was reported missing. Her body parts were found the day before in a storage shed in northeast Lincoln, where police say they also discovered four hand saws, a knife, air fresheners, a machete, buckets and several plastic containers.

Miller told investigators he hit his wife with a baseball bat before firing shots into her head, chest and left arm. Police say Miller dismembered his wife’s body in their home.
