BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison, with 20 years suspended, for shooting his wife’s lover to death on Christmas Day 2012.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://tinyurl.com/mhcf2ux) David Isaacson pleaded guilty in March to charges he killed Sabah Mallak.

Police responding to reports of gunfire on Dec. 25, 2012, found Mallak lying in the snow near his car, which had crashed through a fence.

Court records say Isaacson became angry when his wife left to meet Mallak, grabbed a pistol and followed them, leading to a confrontation.

Isaacson also pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence for trying to dispose of the gun, driving over the area where Mallak was shot and washing his hands.
