ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - An 83-year-old Parowan man has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for killing his stepdaughter outside his home in July.

Fifth District Judge Keith Barnes on Tuesday also ordered Nathan Zimmerman to pay $10,000 in restitution.

Zimmerman earlier pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 57-year-old Janet Goode of Parowan.

Zimmerman told investigators that Goode was walking toward the house when he fired a round from a shotgun at her chest.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports no motive for the shooting has been publicly revealed, but court records show Zimmerman’s wife filed for divorce the same day of the shooting.



The Spectrum of St. George reports the victim’s family members asked the judge to impose the maximum penalty, which Barnes did.
