Florida - Former guard gets life in prison
Jackson County Floridan

A former local correctional officer will spend the rest of his life on the other side of the bars, sentenced to life in prison Tuesday for shooting his wife to death at the home of a Cottondale man.
Calhoun County resident Julian "Jack" Shiver was sentenced shortly after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the death of his long-estranged wife, Felisia Shiver, and to other charges.
Mrs. Shiver was fatally shot at the home of her friend Paul Barber Jr. on April 14, 2007.
According to authorities, Mr. Shiver kicked in the front door and forced his way into the house on Omaha Trail just before midnight that evening and shot his wife twice after a brief argument, the bullets striking her in the head.
He then turned the 9 mm handgun on Barber, who grabbed a 12-gauge shotgun and returned fire, authorities said.
Mr. Shiver was shot twice in the torso, and Barber was not injured.
Mrs. Shiver died of her injuries the following Friday at Flowers Hospital in Dothan.
Shiver was arrested on April 21 as he was released from the hospital and was initially indicted on a first-degree murder charge in August.
As part of Tuesday's negotiated plea, the charge was reduced from first to second degree.
He additionally pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted murder for firing at Barber, burglary while armed, and shooting into an occupied dwelling in the case. He was sentenced to life without parole on the first three charges and to 15 years on the last one.
Both the Shivers and Mr. Barber were employed by the Florida Department of Corrections at the time of the shooting.
Both men were correctional officers, Shiver working at Liberty Correctional Institution and Barber at Calhoun Correctional Institution. Mrs. Shiver worked at Calhoun CI as a secretary specialist and had once been a correctional officer for the state.
At his sentencing, Shiver's defense attorney Bob Sombathy asked the judge to recommend that his client be housed in federal custody rather than in a state facility like the one where he once worked.
Presiding Judge Michael Miller, who was filling in for Circuit Judge Bill Wright, agreed to make the recommendation but a final decision on that matter will be up to the federal prison system.
