SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A 46-year-old man was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison for the shooting death of his wife, a Russian he met online and brought to Oregon.

David Paul Eaton pleaded guilty last month in Marion County Circuit Court to the murder of his 31-year-old wife, Elena Nikolaevna Lobodina Eaton. He shot her in 2012 at their home in Salem during an argument over their pending divorce.

Statesman Journal reports ( https://stjr.nl/1gO7qjE ) Eaton initially claimed he fired in self-defense but later admitted he put a knife in her hand after she was dead.
