SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A Scottsdale woman who pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in the July 2015 shooting of her ex-husband has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Authorities say 61-year-old Rhonda Cerny shot ex-husband Craig Cerny in the chest during a dispute at his Scottsdale home.

The couple had been married for 28 years and divorced in 2014.

Investigators say Rhonda Cerny accompanied her daughter to the home of her ex-husband, who didn’t know his ex-wife was joining her.

Craig Cerny told investigators that his ex-wife raised a gun on him during the argument and fired.
