Conviction upheld for Colorado Springs sniper angry about divorce

COLORADO SPRINGS - The Colorado Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday to uphold a judge's sentence of life in prison without parole plus 288 years for convicted murderer Bruce Nozolino. 

Nozolino was convicted in March 2014 of four shootings spanning from 2001 to 2008. The judge in his case said Nozolino couldn't stop being angry about his divorce in the late 1990's, and that's what motivated him to commit the crimes.

Prosecutors said In 2001 Nozolino shot into the home of John Ciccolella, his ex-wife's divorce lawyer. Four months later, Nozolino shot into the home of Gilbert Martinez, the judge who presided over his divorce. The following year Nozolino shot Ciccolella in the eye while he was in his office. And in 2008 Nozolino shot and killed Richard Schreiner, his ex-wife's lover.
