Retired NYPD Sergeant John Galtieri was sentenced Wednesday to 32 years to life in prison for murdering his ex-wife in 2007. Galtieri, 64, was convicted of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon for fatally shooting 58-year-old Jeanne Kane on January 30, 2007. Kane was a member of the popular 1960s singing group, The Kane Triplets.

Galtieri was sentenced to the top penalties of 25 to life for the murder charge and 7 years for weapons possession, to be served consecutively.

"After a marriage marked by domestic violence and intimidation, Jeanne Kane courageously began a new life apart from John Galtieri and seemingly beyond his control," District Attorney Daniel Donovan said. "Sadly that new life was brutally ended when this now-convicted murderer stalked her in a parking lot where she was waiting to drive their daughter home from work."

Galtieri shot his ex-wife multiple times as she sat in her vehicle in a Staten Island park-and-ride facility at 2171 South Service Road. Following the shooting, Galtieri fled the scene in a gray Chrysler Concorde, in which he driving when apprehended in South Carolina during a traffic stop at approximately 9:10 a.m. the following day.
