SPOKANE, Wash. - A man convicted of killing his wife in February of last year was sentenced Thursday to serve 220 months behind bars.

The body of Becky Brosnan, 32-years-old at the time, was discovered wrapped in insulation and plastic on February 10 behind Ark Commercial Roofing. She had been reported missing by family members 12 days before her body was found.

Becky's estranged husband, Uriah Brosnan, worked at Ark and police believe he killed her there.

In December, Uriah pleaded guilty to 2nd Degree Murder and at his sentencing Thursday, Judge Tari Eitzen commented that Uriah's 220 month sentence was not long enough but is all the law allows.

"That's it, that's what I can do. This was a vicious murder that went on for some period of time," said Eitzen. "220 months is all the law allows me to impose and I apologize for that because I don't think it's long enough."

Eitzen called Uriah's actions after he committed the murder "cold, calculated and ugly."

At the time of the murder, Uriah and Becky had been separated, but had 2 children in common.
