JOHN Walker cheated on his wife then shot her at point-blank range when she threatened to expose him.
Ipswich Crown Court heard how Walker called 999 on November 11 2002 and told emergency services he had been "overcome with anger" during an argument.
When they went to his home in Great Bealings, police officers found Glenda Walker dead on the dining room carpet.
She had been shot at point-blank range with a 12-bore shotgun. Walker, 66, of Lodge road, denies murder on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
But prosecutor Karim Khalil told jurors the act had been calculated to kill. He said: "This defendant shot his wife from a couple of feet away with a 12-bore gun.
"He meant to kill her."
