Anthony Scott has been convicted of murder in the shooting death of his wife in Lee County.
The jury stayed out only a short time before returning their unanimous verdict.
Judge James Sizemore sentenced Scott to life in prison.
Scott admitted to shooting his wife Cathy several times outside their home after he found evidence that she may have been having an affair.
Scott took the stand in Lee County Superior Court Thursday, weeping, as he told the court that he did not remember the act of shooting his wife several times, with two guns.
He said that he remembers the events leading up to the shooting, but not the act itself.
Not even the defense is disputing that Anthony Scott shot and killed his wife, but it's his state of mind at the time, whether it was pre-meditated or in a fit of passion.
