CAPE TOWN -  Convicted murderer Rob Packham has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for killing his wife on Wednesday.

Last month, the Western Cape High Court found the 58-year-old guilty of murder and obstructing justice.

Gill Packham's body was found in the boot of her burnt-out car at the Diep River train station in February last year.

Packham was arrested after DNA testing confirmed his wife's identity.

Judge Elize Steyn said her murder was callous, brutal and shocking.

Steyn also said Packham showed no remorse and tried to cover up his crime.

The couple had been married for 30 years.
