PHOENIX -- A man accused of killing another motorist in a 2008 road-rage incident in Scottsdale has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors said 51-year-old John Chester Stuart was convicted of second-degree murder and drive-by shooting in September.

His first trial ended in a hung jury with Stuart representing himself. He had an attorney for the second trial.

Stuart was facing up to 48 years in prison in the death of 49-year-old Tom Beasley.

He was sentenced to 18 years in prison for the murder charge and a concurrent 14 years for the drive-by shooting charge.

Authorities said Stuart fatally shot Beasley on Jan. 29, 2008, after the two men got into an argument that turned physical after the Phoenix Open golf tournament.
