The man sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for hiring a homeless man to kill his wife faces another 32 years behind bars.

George Tiaffay was sentenced in September for the death of his wife, Shauna Tiaffay. He faced six other charges, including conspiracy to commit murder, and was sentenced on Tuesday.

The homeless man, Noel Stevens, testified against Tiaffay in September trial, saying that the former firefighter had promised to pay him $5,000, although he only received $600. Stevens had pleaded guilty to his role in the murder.

Stevens said that he hit Shauna Tiaffay in the head with a hammer at least 17 times in September 2012 in her apartment near South Pavilion Center and Sahara Avenue.
