NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - A southwest Florida man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for fatally shooting his neighbor.

As part of a deal with Collier County prosecutors, 62-year-old Robert Moulton pleaded no contest Thursday to second-degree murder.

Authorities say Moulton killed 41-year-old Sergey Chepchugov in May 2014 following a long-running feud between the Naples neighbors. Video from a security camera shows the two men arguing about Moulton’s dog shortly before the shooting. The Naples Daily News (https://goo.gl/y7yb37 ) reports that the recording also catches audio of Moulton admitting to his wife that he killed Chepchugov.

Moulton’s wife, Deborah, is also facing a second-degree murder charge, but she was recently deemed incompetent to proceed to trial.
