A pilot has been jailed for life for murdering his estranged wife at their home in Warwickshire.
Andrew Thomas McIntosh beat Patricia McIntosh to death in November last year.
McIntosh - of Woolscott in Warwickshire - visited Patricia at their martial home in Knightcote to talk about the sale of the house.
He then beat her to death, striking her several times before driving home and drinking a bottle of wine.
Yesterday, a jury convicted the 54-year-old of murder.
Patricia's body was only found after McIntosh's friends raised their concerns with the police.
Detective Sergeant Gareth Unett, from Warwickshire Police, said:
In a statement, Patricia's family said no sentence will bring her back.
McIntosh was jailed for life with a minimum sentence of 17 years.
