A Missouri man was sentenced to 23 years in prison for killing and dismembering his wife, and then burying her in the Mark Twain National Forest.

KMOV reports that John McLaughlin, 65, of Sunset Hills, was sentenced on Friday after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter, evidence tampering and abandonment of a corpse. McLaughlin was originally charged with second-degree murder.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that McLaughlin killed his wife in 2015 by throwing her down on a steel rack. Then, McLaughlin dismembered her and drove about 160 miles (257.48 kilometers) southwest of St. Louis to bury her. Her body was found in April 2016.

The couple had a marriage of 35 years when Linda McLaughlin filed for divorce. The couple was supposed to appear in court to settle their divorce, three days after Linda disappeared.

Un hombre de Missouri fue condenado a 23 años de prisión por matar y desmembrar a su esposa y luego enterrarla en el Bosque Nacional Mark Twain.

KMOV informa que John McLaughlin, de 65 años, de Sunset Hills, fue sentenciado el viernes después de declararse culpable de homicidio voluntario, manipulación de evidencia y abandono de un cadáver. McLaughlin fue originalmente acusado de asesinato en segundo grado.

El St. Louis Post-Dispatch informa que McLaughlin mató a su esposa en 2015 arrojándola sobre una rejilla de acero. Luego, McLaughlin la desmembró y condujo unas 160 millas (257.48 kilómetros) al suroeste de St. Louis para enterrarla. Su cuerpo fue encontrado en abril de 2016.

La pareja tenía un matrimonio de 35 años cuando Linda McLaughlin solicitó el divorcio. Se suponía que la pareja debía comparecer ante el tribunal para resolver su divorcio, tres días después de que Linda desapareciera.
