A Wisconsin man convicted of beating his wife to death and forcing part of an Easter bunny-shaped dish down her throat was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without a chance at early release.
Patrick Zurkowski has maintained all along that he killed his wife June in self-defense after she came after him with a paring knife. He asked the court to “let him go” during a sentencing hearing, saying there’s no need for him to sit in jail for the rest of his life. [Wisconsin Radio Network/WSAU]
This reminds me of the story about the guy that tried to kill his wife (girlfriend?) by shoving her cell phone down her throat. His defense was she tried to swallow the phone to keep him from seeing who she’d been talking to. I thought I posted it but can’t locate.
