BOISE, Idaho -

A 62-year-old Boise man who strangled his wife to death has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

KBOI-TV reports in a story on Tuesday that Bruce Macomb received the sentence for killing 58-year-old Barb Macomb in February 2013.

Macomb pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter after initially being charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Macomb strangled his wife to death before trying to kill himself. Court records say Macomb slashed his neck and wrists.
