COLUMBUS -- A Gahanna man was sentenced Tuesday morning in a downtown Columbus courtroom for killing his wife.
The murder happened last May when 61-year-old Thomas Edwards woke up his wife, Teresa, at 5:30 a.m. to pick up a car.
She said "no" and went back to sleep. Edwards was drunk, grabbed another drink and grabbed his gun.
He shot his wife four times in the head while she was in bed.
He then called his sister and police and admitted what he did but says he doesn't remember what he did.
Theresa's son, Brian Schwartz, said Thomas was very volatile in the 34 year marriage with his mother and very explosive.
The judge sentenced Edwards to 28 years to life in prison.
His attorney said Edwards knows he'll die in prison, and he had even asked for the death penalty when talking to police.
