COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A man convicted of shooting his estranged wife’s boyfriend to death near Colorado Springs has been sentenced to two life terms in prison plus 144 years.

The Gazette reports (https://goo.gl/zab1PT ) 60-year-old Maxwell Garihan, of Black Forest, was convicted and sentenced Monday for the October 2015 death of 57-year-old Alan Havens and the attempted murder of Margaret Temple. He was found guilty of several charges, including first-degree murder.

Temple told investigators that Garihan appeared at her bedroom door after Havens had fallen asleep and while she was preparing for bed. Havens was shot six times, including four times in the head and once in the back. Temple was shot twice.

Jurors rejected the argument that Temple herself perpetrated the shooting. Defense attorneys claimed she went so far as to shoot herself twice in the head to conceal her involvement.
