BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man has been sentenced to about 20 years in prison for strangling his wife, who he told authorities had been romantically interested in someone else.

The Naples Daily News reported Tuesday that 52-year-old Virender Yadav was sentenced last month in the 2017 slaying of 42-year-old Ghelin Saray Yadav.

The Lee Sheriff’s Office says Yadav told deputies he found text messages from another man on his wife’s phone and argued with her about it. A sheriff’s office report says Yadav told deputies his wife was considering leaving him for someone else.

It says Yadav told deputies he attacked her as she walked away from him. It says Yadav later called authorities and asked for medical assistance for his wife, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
