Man sentenced to prison for love triangle that turned deadly

Posted: Updated:

PERKASIE, Pa. (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia man convicted in the fatal shooting of a romantic rival has been sentenced to prison.

The Bucks County Courier Times reports (http://bit.ly/2wxx1sL ) 34-year-old Jeffrey Gould was sentenced Wednesday to a maximum of 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to the July 2016 slaying of Edward Dubinsky.

Prosecutors say the two men had quarreled over Zannatul "Asha" Naim, and they sent taunting emails to each other over a period of several weeks. Their dispute escalated when Gould approached Dubinsky while he was sitting on his front porch and shot him.

Gould's attorney described the situation as a "perfect storm of a very volatile relationship." He says Gould was remorseful for his actions.

The judge has ordered Gould to pay restitution to cover Dubinsky's funeral expenses.
