Bruce William Macomb, 62, was sentenced Tuesday to between 10 and 15 years in prison for choking his wife to death a year ago in their Southeast Boise home.
Police said Macomb killed his wife, Beba Macomb, 58, on Feb. 16, 2013, and then slashed his own neck and wrists in an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
Macomb was originally charged with first-degree murder. He pleaded guilty in February to a reduced charge of voluntary manslaughter. A charge of failure to report his wife's death was dismissed in exchange for Macomb's guilty plea.
