DECATUR, Ga. - A 47-year-old Georgia man was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after a jury found him guilty of killing his wife in January 2010.

Dennis Allaben was sentenced Thursday by Judge Linda Hunter after he was convicted of malice murder, felony murder and aggravated assault charges.

Prosecutors say he killed his wife Maureen, a former set decorator for "The Mo'Nique Show," and then drove his two young children to Virginia with her body in the bed of their truck. They say he then dropped his children off with relatives and returned to Georgia.

Allaben's attorney argued in court his client had gone unhinged but that he didn't commit murder.
