Criste Reimer: update

Kansas City, Missouri - Stanley Reimer, 52, who pleaded guilty last Friday in connection with the killing of his wife, Criste Reimer, aged 47, in August 2007, has been sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison, according to this report from AHN News. As reported by FRIDA in an earlier post, Criste, who was seriously ill and partially blind, died after Stanley Reimer threw her from the balcony of their four-story apartment because, it is said, he could no longer pay for her medical care.

Under the terms of his plea agreement, Stanley Reimer will be eligible for parole in 25 years. The story in full is here. An earlier story is here. Cilla Sluga also has an earlier post about this case here.
