BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck man found not guilty of trying to kill his wife has been sentenced to three years in prison on lesser charges, with most of the time suspended.

Fifty-five-year-old Terry Link was accused of trying to strangle his wife and threatening her with a kitchen knife in October 2014, after Tamara Link filed for divorce.

A jury in July cleared Terry Link of attempted murder but convicted him on charges of interfering with an emergency phone call and preventing arrest.

South Central District Judge James Hill on Monday sentenced Link to the three years but suspended two years and gave Link credit for 338 days he already had served in jail.

Link also will be required to complete a domestic violence offender treatment program and undergo electronic monitoring.
