EDINBURG, Texas (AP) - A plea agreement means a 25-year prison term for a former U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry director who killed his wife.
Joseph Mongiello III pleaded guilty to murder in the Jan. 13 shooting death of his 45-year-old wife, Lindsay Parker Tall. She was found slain at the couple's home in Mission.
Mongiello, 49, was charged after calling emergency responders following a domestic dispute.
The plea agreement and sentencing were Monday.
Mongiello in 2003 was named port director at the Rio Grande City-Camargo International Bridge.
