PHOENIX (AP) -- A Phoenix man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of his wife.
 
A Maricopa County Superior Court spokeswoman says Anthony Rinaldi entered his plea Tuesday in the 2011 death of 28-year-old Amanda Blaies-Rinaldi.
 
Judge Rosa Mroz set sentencing for Nov. 26.
 
Phoenix police arrested Rinaldi after his wife's body was discovered in their Ahwatukee home.
 
Firefighters had responded to a call from a child that someone had been shot.
 
When responders arrived at the house, they discovered the body and two children inside the home.
 
The children were not harmed.
