    Army Sgt's Remains Return 69 Years After He Was KIA
    Jeremy Green

    A San Diego man who shot and killed his wife outside their marriage counselor’s office will serve at least 35 years in prison.

    A San Diego County judge on Friday sentenced Jeremy Green, 40, to a punishment of life in prison, with the eligibility of parole after 35 years.

    Green pleaded guilty on Oct. 7 to first-degree murder in the June 6 death of his wife, 37-year-old Tressa Green.

    Authorities said Jeremy Green shot Tressa in the parking lot of a business complex following a marriage counseling session he had suggested the couple attend together.

    After shooting his wife three times and mortally wounding her, Jeremy Green escaped in a silver 2007 Corvette and headed for the U.S.-Mexico border, prosecutors said.

    The shooting sparked a statewide manhunt for Jeremy Green, considered armed and dangerous by law enforcement.

    Investigators soon found his Corvette abandoned in the parking lot of a Jack-in-the-Box in San Ysidro, just a short walk away from the pedestrian crossing at the U.S.-Mexico border, authorities said.

    Green turned himself in to officials three days later.
