Ex-Cop Sentenced to Life in Prison
(2008-08-25)
(wgvu) - GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A former Holland police officer has
been sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing his
wife.
Forty-five-year-old Ken DeKleine said nothing during his
sentencing Monday, which followed his conviction last month on a
charge of first-degree murder in 43-year-old Lori DeKleine's death.
Court testimony showed the DeKleines were going through a bitter
divorce and custody battle.
Ottawa County Circuit Judge Calvin Bosman told DeKleine it's "a
total mystery" why he didn't consider another course of action
given his Christian education, police training and good record.
