Alonzo Irelan of Swanton, Ohio was sentenced in a Toledo courtroom to 17 years in prison for trying to kill his estranged wife on two separate occasions.

He entered an Alford plea to two counts of attempted murder, meaning the defendant does not admit guilt but admits the evidence presented would likely lead a jury or judge to find him guilty.

Prosecutors say Irelan tampered with his the woman’s vehicle and later tried to set her on fire in a series of attacks.
