Scottsdale man gets prison in wife's strangulation

PHOENIX -- A man accused of killing his wife at their Scottsdale home has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors said 61-year-old Michael Jay Cohn was sentenced Friday.

He pleaded guilty last November to second-degree murder in the case.

Cohn originally pleaded not guilty in April 2013 to a charge of first-degree murder.

Scottsdale police said Cohn called 911 last March 27 and said he had strangled his 60-year-old wife.

Responding officers said they found Linda Cohn's body in a bathroom.

Officers said they noticed blood on Michael Cohn's hands and scratches on his neck but Cohn wouldn't tell them what had happened. Instead he asked for an attorney.
