PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for killing his wife and setting a fire to cover it up.

The Palm Beach Post (https://goo.gl/jA6Ort ) reports that 51-year-old David Arthur was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to second-degree murder and arson.

Authorities say 57-year-old Kathleen Dunleavy kicked Arthur out of her Palm Beach Gardens duplex last April following an argument over his drug addiction and money. Prosecutors say Arthur strangled Dunleavy, stuffed her body in a laundry room storage bin and set the home on fire.
