ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for stabbing his wife to death in 2006.

Leng Moua was convicted in the death of Shoua Lee. He was sentenced Friday in Anchorage Superior Court. Prosecutors say Lee was stabbed after a daylong argument over a trip to California.

The 57-year-old man was convicted in June of first-degree murder. He stabbed his wife multiple times with a butcher knife. He was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Michael Wolverton, who called the killing a "horrible circumstance."
