PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -
A former corrections officer has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for second-degree murder and disorderly conduct in the death of his wife.
Superior Court Judge Rosa Mroz sentenced Anthony Philip Rinaldi on Friday to the maximum terms allowed under a plea agreement Rinaldi reached with prosecutors in October.
Police said one of Rinaldi's children was on the phone to a 911 operator on Dec. 13, 2011 when Rinaldi's wife, 28-year-old Amanda Blaies-Rinaldi, was killed.
Investigators said when police arrived, they found two boys, ages 2 and 7, with the body of their mother.
Police said that after the shooting, Rinaldi left the house in the 4600 block of East Piedmont, and drove to 16th Street and Interstate 10 where he saw an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer doing a traffic stop.
He approached the officer, told him he had shot his wife and surrendered to the officer, police said.
The children were not harmed.
Rinaldi worked for the state Department of Corrections at the Lewisville facility for 11 months, according to the DOC.
