A man who shot his wife in their Denver home has been sentenced to 48 years in prison.
Phillip Bivins was convicted by District Judge Christopher Baumann, according to a press release from prosecutors on Friday.
On July 18, 2019, Bivins shot and killed Tia Bivins on the 3200 block of Dexter Street.
About 22 hours after the shooting, Bivins entered Denver Police District Station Two and told officers he had been involved in a shooting. In March, after five and a half hours of deliberation, a Denver jury found Bivins guilty of second-degree murder.
Tia Bivins, 42, was an organizer and union leader at the Service Employees International Union Local 105. Union colleagues at the time of her death described Tia on Facebook as a mother, grandmother and “a true fighter for the working people.”
