BRENTWOOD (AP) - A New Hampshire man who pleaded guilty to killing his ex-wife in 2013 has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Aaron Desjardins of Epping pleaded guilty last year to the killing of Amanda "Amy" Warf, ambushing her in her employer's parking lot and forcing her to drive to a concrete plant in Exeter. Police said he slit her throat, poured gasoline on her and set her ablaze.

Prosecutors said Desjardins' plot to kill Warf dated back to 2011, when she left him.

Desjardins appeared in Rockingham County Superior Court on Friday. His sister, Michele Corson of Skowhegan, Maine, pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy charges.

Desjardins' current wife, Sarah Desjardins, is expected to face trial in October on a charge of accomplice to first-degree murder.
