PHOENIX -- A Phoenix man has pleaded guilty to second-degree in the death of his wife.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokeswoman said Anthony Rinaldi entered his plea Tuesday in the 2011 death of 28-year-old Amanda Blaies-Rinaldi.

Judge Rosa Mroz set sentencing for Nov. 26.

Phoenix police arrested Rinaldi after his wife's body was discovered in their southeast Phoenix home.

Firefighters had responded to a call from a child that someone had been shot.

When responders reached the scene, they discovered the body and two children inside the home.

The children were not harmed.
