WICHITA, Kan. -- A Sedgwick County judge has sentenced a man to more than 23 years in prison for killing his wife last year.
Judge Joe Kisner on Thursday sentenced Guy Wayne Palmer to 285 months in prison in the stabbing death of his wife, Debra. He was convicted of second-degree murder in October.
Police found Debra’s body in the basement of a home in the 6800 block of Farmview in December 2012. Police said Palmer went to the Sedgwick County Jail shortly after the stabbing and turned himself in.
