PHOENIX -- A Phoenix man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for the second-degree murder of his wife.

Superior Court Judge Rosa Mroz sentenced Anthony Rinaldi on Friday to the maximum terms allowed under a plea agreement Rinaldi had reached with prosecutors in October. He had also been charged with disorderly conduct.

Phoenix police arrested Rinaldi after the body of 28-year-old Amanda Blaies-Rinaldi was discovered in their southeast Phoenix home in 2011.

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

When responders arrived, they discovered the woman's body and two children inside the Ahwatukee-neighborhood home. The children were not harmed.
