A former police officer convicted of killing his wife, a television news anchor, in a sniper attack at their home two years ago was sentenced today to life in prison without possibility of parole.

The sentence was imposed on Bradford King by Judge Conrad Sindt of Calhoun County Circuit Court. Mr. King, who is 45, was convicted last month. Mr. King's wife, Diane Newton King, 34, was killed in February 1991, shot twice in the driveway of the couple's home in Marshall, just east of Battle Creek, as she was removing their two infant children from her car. The authorities say the shots were fired from a hayloft on the property.
