A Texas man was sentenced last week to 10 years in prison after fatally shooting his wife in the head outside their home in Spring, Texas, in December of 2021.

According to ABC 13, 60-year-old Carey Birmingham fatally shot his wife Patricia in the head three times after Birmingham discovered that his wife had allegedly had an affair. “I hope it was worth it,” Birmingham said in a video obtained by ABC 13. “I’m done, I’m f-cking done.”

ABC 13 reported that the couple argued for approximately 30 minutes before the argument led to violence. Just before shooting his wife, Birmingham told her, “Alright, goodbye. You’re (going to) meet Jesus.”

Anthony Osso, Birmingham’s lawyer, confirmed to ABC 13 that Birmingham pleaded “guilty” last week to an all-women jury panel. The attorney explained that the defense strategy in Birmingham’s case was never to justify Birmingham’s actions; instead, the defense attorney attempted to convince the jury that Birmingham shot his wife out of passion.

“We never tried to justify the actions of our client, but the defense wasn’t about justification,” Osso said. “It was about why he did what he did.”

In the aftermath of the trial, Birmingham’s daughter Olivia has spoken out about her father’s actions, questioning his defense that the murder of her mother was caused by “sudden passion.”

“You have to have something. You have to have made that decision within you for a while; I feel like to do something, to do that to someone you really love,” she told ABC 13. “No matter what was said in this trial, you know what type of woman she was, and you know what you did and how he took away my favorite person in this world.”

According to ABC 13, Olivia Birmingham was at school when her father murdered her mother in 2021. Birmingham told ABC 13 that she lost both of her parents in a single day as a result of her mom’s murder.

“I lost both my parents that day,” she said. “My dad died that day, too, because the person who did that to my mom and my father aren’t the same person.”
