Ahwatukee Foothills resident Anthony Rinaldi was sentenced to 25 years in prison Friday after he pleaded guilty to murdering his wife in 2011.

Rinaldi was accused of killing his 28-year-old wife, Amanda Blaies-Rinaldi, in Ahwatukee Foothills in 2011 while his two sons were inside the house. The boys were not harmed. Firefighters responded to the scene when the older of the two boys, just 7 years old at the time, called for help.

Rinaldi reportedly left the home after the shooting but was pulled over by a Department of Public Safety officer a short time later on Interstate 10 and turned himself in.

According to court documents, Rinaldi pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and disorderly conduct. On Friday, Dec. 6 he was sentenced to 25 years in prison. The victim’s son, sister and mother addressed the court during the proceedings.
