N.H. Man Gets 35 To Life For Fatally Shooting Wife
A judge has sentenced a New Hampshire man to the maximum of 35 years to life in prison for fatally shooting his wife in a jealous rage as their young son slept nearby.
James Perriello pleaded guilty Dec. 3 to second-degree murder in Sullivan County Superior Court.
He admitted he shot 42-year-old Natalie Perriello, a popular teacher at Lebanon High School, six times in the head on April 26, 2012, at their Grantham home. Another bullet lodged in a window frame above where the youngest of their four children slept.
The 42-year-old Perriello said he had secretly taped his wife and discovered she was having an affair.
His lawyer argued for 18 to 36 years.
