TAMPA - A judge sentenced Christopher Hanney to life in prison on Friday.
Hanney was convicted of attempted murder, aggravated battery and arson in January.
A jury found Hanney purposefully struck his estranged wife, Audrey Mabrey, with a hammer and then set her on fire, attempting to kill her. This happened in 2009 at the house the couple shared in Apollo Beach.
