CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A Charles Town man convicted of killing his wife will serve at least 15 years in prison.

The Journal (https://bit.ly/1muMqEj ) reports that a Jefferson County Circuit Court jury found 43-year-old Harold Stambaugh Jr. guilty of first-degree murder on Friday. Judge David. H. Saunders sentenced Stambaugh to 15 years to life in prison. Stambaugh will be eligible for parole after serving 15 years.
