A Northern Idaho man will spend at least the next 15 years in prison for the death of a Spokane woman whose body was found submerged in a lake last June.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reports 47-year-old Patrick Neil McGhee was sentenced to a minimum of 15 years, but could serve ten additional years beyond that.

He entered a plea earlier this year that didn't admit guilt, but acknowledged there was enough evidence to convict him on charges of Voluntary Manslaughter and Destruction of Evidence.
