Robert Durall Gets Stiff Sentence

Robert Durall Gets Stiff Sentence
KING COUNTY - Convicted killer Robert Durall will spend twice the normal sentence in jail for killing his wife two years ago.

Friday, a King County Superior Court Judge gave Durall almost 47 years in prison for bludgeoning his wife, Carolyn, to death.

Prosecutors say the act capped a history of abuse, and that Carolyn had asked for a divorce shortly before being killed.

Durall was convicted of the crime in August.

His wife's family has filed a wrongful death suit against him. That trial is set to begin next month.
