Lawrence man gets life term for killing sick wife

A 67-year-old Lawrence man who shot and killed his ailing wife last year was sentenced Thursday to life in prison with a chance for parole after 25 years. Larry L. Hopkins pleaded no contest in March to first-degree murder in the death of 61-year-year-old Margaret Hopkins, his wife of 24 years.
