CHICAGO (AP) - A man who shot and killed his ex-girlfriend outside her Chicago apartment as their two small children watched has been sentenced to 45 years in state prison.

The Chicago Tribune (https://trib.in/2chU4Q ) reports that 34-year-old Myron Mason was sentenced by a Cook County judge on Friday after pleading guilty to first-degree murder in the April 21, 2015, slaying of Mechelle Lewis.

Prosecutors say Lewis pulled up to her home with the children, ages 8 and 5, in her van when Mason walked up and shot her several times. He was arrested a short time later after witnesses called police.

The children told detectives that their father had shot their mother.
