BOSTON (AP) - A federal prosecutor says a Massachusetts man charged with trying to hire a “hit man” to kill his estranged wife has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for trying to hire someone to kill the undercover state trooper who posed as the hit man.

Fifty-four-year-old Andrew S. Gordon, a financial planner in Chelmsford, was convicted in March of using the mail and telephone to try to hire a New Hampshire gang member to kill the state trooper and another man, both witnesses in the state case against Gordon. The gang member was actually another undercover officer.

U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz in Boston said in a news release that Gordon was sentenced Tuesday to the prison term, plus three years’ supervised release and a $20,000 fine.
