MONTICELLO, N.Y. (AP) - A former New York City paramedic has been sentenced to three to 12 years in prison for driving a man upstate where he killed his wife six years ago and set her house on fire.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (https://bit.ly/1iWHtQJ ) that 42-year-old Scott Sherwood of Lindenhurst on Long Island was sentenced Tuesday in Sullivan County Court.

Prosecutors say Sherwood drove Paul Novak to Catherine Novak’s house in Narrowsburg, New York in December 2008. The 41-year-old woman’s body was later found in the basement of her burned home.

Both men were arrested in September 2012 and charged with killing her. Sherwood, who didn’t go into the house, testified against Novak at his trial last fall.

Novak, formerly of Palm Coast, Florida, was found guilty of murder.
