WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man has been found guilty of trying to kill his wife and two sons.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1GPrk97 ) Pettix McMillan was convicted Thursday of three counts of attempted first-degree murder.

The Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office says McMillan could be ordered to serve 12 1/2 years to more than 54 years in prison when he’s sentenced later this year.

Prosecutors said McMillan shot his wife in her arm and neck during an argument in the garage of their home on March 24, 2014, and then turned the gun on their 5- and 13-year-old boys. All three survived.

The prosecutor’s office says he was convicted after a four-day trial. Officers testified there had been several domestic violence calls to the home, including one six weeks before the shooting.
