ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) - A 32-year-old Vermont man is going to prison for at least 40 years for shooting to death a stranger in what began as an act of road rage in St. Albans in September 2013.

Matthew Webster, of Swanton, was sentenced Friday after more than two hours of emotional testimony from loved ones of the victim, 31-year-old Anna Alger, of Highgate.

A jury last summer found Webster guilty of second degree murder.

Judge Alison Arms told Webster the victim did nothing to invite her death.

The Burlington Free Press (bfpne.ws/213GoNs) reports that Webster read a letter apologizing to Alger’s family.

Webster shot Alger when she confronted him after he ran a red light and cut her off in traffic.
