PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man accused of trying to kill a witness to a crime has been sentenced to life in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 25-year-old Javier Aguayo also was sentenced Friday to an additional 32 ½ years in prison for attempted first-degree murder and other charges.

He won’t be eligible for parole for 25 years.

During a 2011 road-rage incident, Aguayo allegedly aimed a loaded gun at a car carrying a couple and a young child.

While out on bond, prosecutor say Aguayo began stalking the victims, who were the key witnesses against him.

He allegedly researched where they lived, got a gun, recruited a getaway driver and began following the female victim.

Prosecutors say Aguayo shot and wounded her in February 2012.
