LUBBOCK, Texas -

Juan Carlos Gallardo was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole Monday afternoon. 

A jury convicted Gallardo last week of murdering Yvette Ellis in 2017.

He shot and killed her in her own home with her children in the house. Gallardo abused her, isolated her from her friends and threatened to kill himself because he thought she was going to leave him. 

He tried telling the jury Ellis took the gun from him during a fight and shot herself. Prosecutors proved he executed her with at least one shot to the back of her head.
