COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A 40-year-old Council Bluffs man accused of trying to kill his estranged wife has been imprisoned.

David McKee was given 25 years at his sentencing hearing Tuesday. He’d pleaded guilty to a burglary charge after prosecutors dropped charges for attempted murder and other crimes.

Police say McKee a year ago broke into a home where his estranged wife and another woman were living. The wife told officers that he threatened to kill both of them and grabbed her by the throat. She stabbed him with a knife she was holding and the other woman struck him with a weight. He was hospitalized.
