PHOENIX (AP) - A Glendale man accused of murder and burning and dumping the body in the central Arizona desert has been sentenced to 25 ½ years in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 32-year-old Daniel Griffith was sentenced Thursday.

He received a 22-year prison term for second-degree murder, two years for abandonment and concealment of a dead body and 1 ½ years for fraudulent use of a credit card.

All of the sentences will run consecutively.

Griffith pleaded guilty to the charges last month. His wife, 31-year-old Jennifer Griffith, awaits trial in the case.

The couple was arrested in February 2012 after the burned body of a missing Phoenix man was found dumped near the White Tank Mountains.

Authorities say Daniel Griffith tried to use the victim's credit card soon after the killing.
