Man Gets Life in Prison for Stabbing Wife to Death in July

KSAL StaffOctober 5, 2016

A 63-year-old Wichita man has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading no contest in the stabbing death of his wife.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Larry Andres was sentenced Tuesday in Sedgwick County District Court for first-degree premeditated murder in the death of Marilyn Andres. Under a plea agreement, he will be eligible for parole after 25 rather than 50 years.

Prosecutors say Larry Andres stabbed his wife in the chest at least six times after beating her in July in the couple’s home. He called 911 afterward and cooperated with police.

But at the sentencing hearing, he angered her relatives when he said he stabbed but “did not kill her.” He suggested she inflicted the fatal injuries upon herself by hitting her head on a bathtub.
