A Nassau County man was sentenced this week for the slaying of his wife in 2015, the State Attorney's Office announced Thursday.

Kurt Van Zeeland, 51, will spend life in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder. He pleaded guilty last month.

Back in May of last year, Van Zeeland reportedly shot his wife, Catherine, twice in the head at close range.

She was sitting on the front porch of the couple's home when he killed her.
