Mead Man Sentenced For Killing Wife In Front Of Child
KHQ.COM - A Mead man who stabbed his wife to death in front of the couple's 11-year-old son has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Jeffrey Canino pleaded guilty last month to Second Degree Murder for the brutal killing of his wife Michelle in 2009.
Last December Canino was charged after stabbing his wife to death, then stabbing himself, and doing all of that in front of the couple's 11-year-old son.
Michelle's family, along with the prosecutors, have recommended Canino be sentenced to 15 years in prison with 36 months of community custody. In addition they also recommended that he never have contact with his son again. However, the judge does not have to follow these recommendations, and did say that he could sentence Canino to anywhere from 2 years to 18 years in prison.
