A Minot, Maine, man who went on a rampage last year, setting fire to his home and his estranged wife's home, before ramming her minivan with his truck and attempting to run down a police officer has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.
Michael Callahan was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to multiple charges connected to the rampage in May 2013.
Prosecutors dropped a charge of attempted murder.
Prosecutors say his wife had intended to divorce him.
The Sun Journal reports that she spoke in court Wednesday, saying she lived in fear because of his "vindictive nature" and "above-the-law attitude."
His lawyer says the 45-year-old Callahan is taking several medications for a variety of physical and mental ailments that impaired his ability to make proper judgments.
