Timothy Branson was sentenced in Anderson County Circuit Court Friday for the death of his wife, Modena Sutton Branson, who was shot to death at her home on Ballard Road in 2012.

Branson, 51, was sentenced to 15 years for manslaughter and five years for wanton endangerment charges for a total of a 20-year consecutive prison sentence.

In June, Branson accepted the Commonwealth's plea agreement to enter a plea of guilty, which amended the charge of murder to first-degree manslaughter.
