SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A Clifton man has been sentenced to life in prison for shooting his wife to death a day after her birthday.

Solicitor Barry Barnette says 42-year-old Michael Lee Larson was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Authorities say deputies went to a home in May 2014 after getting a 911 call. They found 42-year-old Mitzi Yvonne Emery Larson dead from a gunshot wound.

Barnette says Michael Larson called authorities and said he had shot his wife to death. A witness reported seeing the couple argue before the shooting, and a 12-gauge shotgun was found near Mitzi Larson’s body.
