RIVERTON, Wyo. -- A man who had been living in Chadwick, Missouri for more than two decades, has been sentenced to life in prison for the murders of his ex-wife and two stepsons 33 years ago.

Gerald Uden, 71, was sentenced by a judge in Wyoming Friday, after pleading guilty to shooting Virginia Uden and her sons Reagan and Richard.  Their bodies have never been found.

The Riverton Ranger newspaper reports Uden told the judge he put the bodies in large drums and put them in Fremont Lake in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming.

Uden and his wife, Alice Uden, 74, were arrested in late September at their home in Chadwick, where they had been living for more than twenty years.   Alice Uden is charged with murdering her former husband, whose body was recently found in an abandoned mineshaft in Wyoming.  Ronald Holtz disappeared in late 1974 or early 1975.  Alice Uden was arrested September 26. 

The following day, investigators arrested Gerald Uden for the murders of his family.  He had long been a suspect in the disappearances, but investigators didn't have enough evidence to arrest him until Alice's arrest in Missouri.
