SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A man who claims he had no memory of shooting his wife's lover more than 15 years ago was sentenced on Monday to up to 40 years in prison.

38-year-old Dale Bradley Jr. forced a fellow Kennecott security guard into the trunk of his Camaro and shot him five times in the back in a remote area of Utah County.

Bradley didn't come under scrutiny until his second wife was found dead outside their Price trailer home two years ago. Authorities are still looking into that case.

Bradley pleaded guilty to reduced charges in January for killing Bryan Ruff, the 22-year-old security officer who disappeared from a Kennecott guard shack in 1991. Bradley said he was remorseful and haunted by the case.

But he claims he was in a diabetic coma and has no memory of the shooting.
