A Nevada man was sentenced to 32 years to life in prison for the car-to-car shooting that killed a woman and wounded her husband on Interstate 15 near the Las Vegas Strip.

31-year-old Kenneth McDonald was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in January to murder, attempted murder and discharging a firearm from within a vehicle.

Defense attorney Scott Coffee says McDonald was high on PCP when he started shooting a handgun.

Multiple bullets struck the couple's car in October 2016 in what authorities described as a random shooting. The encounter killed 48-year-old Tracey Donahue and wounded 55-year-old Tom Donahue.
