CLEVELAND -- A man was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in prison for the murder of his ex-wife.

Fahad Saeed was married to Roaa Al Dhannoon when she disappeared in October of 2016.

In May of 2017, investigators discovered her remains, buried inside a container in a wooded area behind an apartment building on Memphis Avenue in Brooklyn.

Prosecutors say a friend of Saeed's took him to a Walmart to buy a shovel. They were seen on video surveillance. 

That man is facing 18 years in prison for obstructing official business.

Roaa Al Dhannoon left behind a 4-year-old son.
