PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally shooting a woman he lived with.

An Escambia County judge sentenced Reginald Jerome Smith this past week after a jury found him guilty of second-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Smith shot Mary Ann Spencer in the head at the home they shared in January 2008.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://goo.gl/TdfU9I ) reports that a previous conviction was reversed because of an incorrect jury instruction.
