NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey man who killed his wife 10 years ago has been sentenced to 12 years behind bars.

Samander Dabas, 46, of South Brunswick, was convincted of murder in 2007, but a state appellate court overturned that verdict in 2011. He pleaded guilty late last week to aggravated manslaughter.

Acting Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey announced the plea deal Tuesday. Dabas will also serve five years of supervised release once he’s freed.

Prosecutors say Dabas used his van to run down his wife, 20-year-old Renu Dabas, in a strip mall parking lot in August 2004.
