GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A Green Bay-area woman has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for fatally shooting her boyfriend.

Tricia Phillips of Howard was also sentenced to 15 years of extended supervision for second-degree reckless homicide and aggravated battery of David Rosenberg in August 2013. She pleaded no contest in July.

Phillips says she shot Rosenberg in self-defense after he choked her and called her obscene names. Prosecutors say there were no signs of a struggle in the apartment and Phillips showed no bruising from the alleged attack.

Judge Tammy Jo Hock says Phillips has seemed “very detached” and “disinterested” while in the courtroom.

Phillips chose not to speak before her sentencing.
