A Wichita man has been sentenced to more than 23 years in prison for killing his wife last year at the couple’s home.
A Sedgwick County judge on Thursday ordered Guy Palmer, 56, to serve the 285-month term in the fatal stabbing of Debra Palmer on Dec. 15, 2012. Palmer, who was convicted of second-degree murder in October, turned himself into authorities at Sedgwick County Jail shortly after the knife attack at 6800 E. Farmview.
Testimony during his trial showed that Debra Palmer, 61, was stabbed six times with a 8 3/4-inch blade in the couple’s basement. Guy Palmer, who told a jury his wife revealed the day of her killing that she was having an affair, claims he doesn’t remember the attack.
