WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – A man who lived down the street from Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York City's northern suburbs when he killed his wife will be spending his next quarter-century in prison.
Carlos Perez-Olivo was sentenced Tuesday to the maximum 25 years to life, two months after his second-degree murder conviction.
Westchester County Court Judge Barbara Zambelli called him "a master of deceit who contrived a diabolical plan."
The 59-year-old disbarred lawyer was found guilty of shooting his schoolteacher wife, Peggy, in the back of the head as they drove home to Chappaqua (CHAP'-uh-kwah) in November 2006. Prosecutors say he wanted his wife's life insurance.
Perez-Olivo blamed the attack on a carjacker.
