JANESVILLE, Wis. -

A Janesville man convicted of killing his estranged wife was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison, according to a Janesville Gazette report.

Krystofer R. R. Carlisle, 54, pleaded guilty Wednesday to first-degree intentional homicide.

Prosecutors said Carlisle strangled Traci Moyer, 46, who was found dead in a house at 315 West Racine St. in Janesville on Dec. 8.

Moyer had recently filed for a divorce from Carlisle, according to police.

The complaint said police found Moyer's body in a bed and her estranged husband lying beside her, barely breathing. Carlisle was transported to a hospital. Carlisle had tried to kill himself after killing Moyer, according to the complaint.

Police said they found a white braided rope tied into a noose in a rear pocket of the jeans Carlisle was wearing, according to the complaint.

When Carlisle became conscious at the hospital, he told police that he "took a bunch of pills so he could go to sleep and not wake up," according to the complaint.

The Janesville Gazette reported an additional sentencing hearing is scheduled for May to determine whether Carlisle will be eligible for parole.
