NAPLES — A southwest Florida man has been sentenced to life in for fatally shooting his on-again-off-again girlfriend.
A Collier County judge sentenced 47-year-old Kevin Risner on Friday. A jury convicted him in April of second-degree murder.
Authorities say Laura Vroman had been living with Risner in a Naples Manor home in November 2009 when Risner shot her three times in the abdomen. Risner turned the gun on himself but survived a shot to the head.
The Naples Daily News (http://goo.gl/AJP8F) reports that Risner was initially found incompetent to stand trial, but he was released from a state hospital in January 2012. He remained in jail since then.
