BEDFORD, Va. (AP) - A Roanoke man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges of trying to arrange the killing of his estranged wife.

Media outlets report that 62-year-old Kevin Christopher Colgan was sentenced on Tuesday in Bedford County Circuit Court. Judge James Updike gave Colgan a 20-year sentence and then suspended 10 years of the term.

Colgan had pleaded no contest in March to solicitation to commit murder.

Colgan was accused of offering to pay an undercover detective to kill his wife. He was arrested on June 19, 2014. The couple’s divorce was finalized in August 2014.
