WOODBRIDGE, Va. - A man who pleaded guilty to murdering his wife, walking up to her car at Chick-fil-A drive-through in northern Virginia and shooting her at point-bank range, will spend years in prison.

Daniel L. Everette was sentenced Thursday to 60 years in prison, but Prince William County Circuit Court Judge William Hamblen suspended 22 years of that sentence.

Prosecutors say Everette and his wife, 48-year-old Alice Jenkins Everette of Dumfries, were separated and in the midst of getting a divorce when Everette shot his wife in 2011.
