KANSAS CITY (AP) — A suburban Kansas City man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for killing his wife last year.

Larnell McDonald, 64. was sentenced Tuesday in Jackson County Circuit Court after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action in the killing of 44-year-old Kimah McDonald.

The shooting happened Aug. 16, 2020, when police were called to the McDonald home in Independence for a domestic dispute. Arriving officers heard a gunshot as they approached the home and later found Kimah McDonald in a bedroom dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

Larnell McDonald said he and his estranged wife were arguing when he pointed a gun at her and insisted the gun accidentally fired.
