A South Carolina prosecutor says a man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to killing his wife.
Anderson County chief prosecutor Chrissy T. Adams said in a news release that 45-yera-old Billy Ray Burriss pleaded guilty on Tuesday to murder in the 2008 death of Suzanne Burris.
Investigators said 51-year-old Suzanne Burriss was shot once in the back and she was still alive when put into the trash container at a neighbor's house where she bled to death.
Adams said Billy Ray Burriss' mother called police after hearing noise and seeing blood on the bed in her son's room. Investigators found a sawed-off shotgun on the floor of the bedroom.
