CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The former radio talk show host convicted of shooting his wife outside their Madeira home last summer was sentenced Wednesday to time already served.

Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Winkler sentenced Blake Seylhouwer to 60 days in jail but, since he's already served three times that amount, Seylhouwer walked out of court a free man.

"I'm relieved," he said afterward in the hallway.

A jury found the former host of "Small Business Sunday" on 55 WKRC (AM Radio)  guilty last month of two counts of negligent assault. 

The jury did not find Seylhouwer, 37, guilty of the more serious charge of felonious assault and was hung on a domestic violence charge.

Madeira police said he shot his wife, Misty, after she turned her back on him and walked away during an Aug. 12 argument.

Earlier in the day, the couple argued over the phone, and she told him to move out. He returned to the house, but she met him in the driveway with his clothes and medication.

As she turned to leave, police say that's when he fired his rifle at her. The bullet hit the driveway, blowing out a large chunk of concrete. Shrapnel and concrete fragments tore into Misty, injuring her leg, chest, neck and head.

The couple's two small daughters were home at the time, but they were not hurt.

Seylhouwer called 911 and claimed he accidentally shot his wife while taking a rifle out of his vehicle, but police didn't buy it.

The two are divorcing.
