OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting his wife has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

Oklahoma County District Court officials say 50-year-old Robert Lee Moon of Midwest City entered the guilty plea Friday. He was accused of the April 22 shooting death of his wife, 51-year-old Denise Moon.

Court officials say District Judge Cindy Truong sentenced Moon to a total of 20 years in prison, but suspended 10 years of the sentence.

Authorities say Robert Moon called police at 12:45 a.m. and said: “I just shot my wife.” Officers found Denise Moon inside her vehicle in the driveway with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes says the couple had no history of domestic violence.
