He spent more than a year on the run after shooting his estranged wife, Kimberly Sisk, on June 1, 2017.

U.S. Marshals captured Golden in October 2018 in Arkansas.

On Friday, Sisk testified on the stand, where she described the incident.

She said Golden took her from her home in Pontotoc, drove her to Bruce, shot her and tried to run over her.

Friday was the first time Sisk had looked at Golden since the attack. Since then, she's had to learn how to walk and talk again.

Golden's sister, Courtney Golden, said her brother was a good man and attended church on a regular basis.

After learning his fate, he was transported to Rankin County and will begin serving his sentence.

Sisk said she is happy with the verdict.

Golden also faces felony charges in Pontotoc County in connection with the shooting case.
