A Wisconsin man, who kept his dead mother in his freezer for years, has been sentenced to seven years in prison and ten years of extended supervision.

Philip Schuth was sentenced Monday on charges including concealment of a corpse.

The charges also included attempted homicide and reckless endangerment because the man had shot at his neighbors when they came to his door.

During a statement to the court Schuth apologized to Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck, his family, the victims, and anyone offended by his fictional creations.

Schuth told investigators that his mother died of natural causes five years ago.

An autopsy confirmed that. He said he hid her death because he was afraid he'd be blamed, and because he wanted to keep collecting her Social Security checks.
