CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming man has been sentenced to life in prison on a first-degree murder conviction in the shooting death of his wife last November at the family home in Ft. Washakie.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cheyenne announced Thursday that U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl of Casper sentenced 52-year-old Koby Dean Johnson of Fort Washakie to serve life prison terms on his convictions of murder and causing death through the use of a firearm.

Johnson was convicted in June in the death of 36-year-old Rachael Noel Johnson. Skavdahl imposed the sentence on Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Koby Johnson shot his wife to death in front of the couple’s children. She was a nursing student at Central Wyoming College.
