ATLANTA (AP) — Fulton County prosecutors say a man has been sentenced to life plus 20 years in prison for killing his wife for insurance money.

District Attorney's spokeswoman Yvette Jones says 67-year-old Paul Mattei was found guilty on charges of murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, insurance fraud and weapons offenses Tuesday in the June 2011 death of Angela Williams.

Prosecutors say Williams — the man's wife of two months — was shot three times in her chest and drove herself to a local gas station in Fairburn for help. She was taken to the Atlanta Medical Center and was pronounced dead.

Authorities say Mattei researched filing insurance claims online the day Williams was killed and called their insurer six weeks after her death to ask about filing a $150,000 claim.
