STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania man has been convicted of fatally shooting his wife, then trying to make it appear to be a case of self-defense.

Fifty-year-old Alois Kudlach was convicted Saturday of first-degree murder and other charges by a jury in Centre County, then immediately sentenced to the mandatory life prison sentence the murder charge carries.

Kudlach’s attorney claimed the defendant shot 51-year-old Nuria Kudlach only after she attacked him with a knife last August 30.

But District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller had argued that it was “a case of staged self-defense that failed miserably” and that Kudlach stood to lose money if his wife divorced him as planned. Prosecutors say Kudlach shot her in the head.
