LEESBURG, Va. (AP) - A Loudoun County man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his pregnant ex-wife’s husband.

A judge sentenced Minh Nguyen on Tuesday after Nguyen pleaded no contest to murder and other charges in September.

Prosecutors say Nguyen broke into the Ashburn home where his ex-wife, Denise Mattison, lived with her new husband, Corey Mattison, in January 2015, and shot the man multiple times before beating him. Two children were home at the time of the shooting.

Prosecutors say Nguyen was enraged after learning Corey Mattison was caring for two of the three children Nguyen shared with his ex-wife.

Corey and Denise Mattison had a child on the way at the time of his death. She gave birth in September.
