Vesuvius, France: A French court on Saturday sentenced Jonathan Dole to 25 years in prison for killing his wife and then burning her body, much to the shock of the country.
The 36-year-old Frenchman was influential when he read the verdict. Earlier, he said “sorry, sorry” while looking at his wife’s parents.
Prosecutors called the 2017 murder an “almost perfect collective crime” and demanded life imprisonment.
Diwal eventually beat his wife to death and burned her body in the forest after learning of her disappearance.
