MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee man who fatally beat his wife with a baseball bat has been sentenced to a maximum 40 years in prison.

Thirty-five-year-old Jose Gonzalez-Ramirez earlier pleaded guilty to first-degree reckless homicide in the February death of 30-year-old Ilona Gonzalez, a teacher at Alverno College.

A criminal complaint says Gonzalez-Ramirez was suspicious that his wife was cheating on him and beat her over the head with an aluminum bat. It says he also tried unsuccessfully to kill himself and their son by cutting vents and hoses to fill their house with carbon monoxide.

The Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/2aTXzL2 ) says Gonzalez-Ramirez had no previous criminal record and was in the process of applying for American citizenship.

He was also ordered by a Milwaukee County judge Friday to serve 20 years of extended supervision.
