Darren Mack Gets 36 to Life

Darren Mack is going to have to serve at least 36 years in prison for the murder of his wife Charla as well as the attempted murder of divorce judge Charles Weller in June of 2006.
According to the story over at one of the CNN blogs,

The sentence was part of a plea deal Mack struck when he pleaded guilty last year to his wife’s murder and no contest to attempting to murder the judge. He claimed he killed in self defense.
Mack stabbed his wife, nearly severing her head, on June 12, 2006, and then went on to the courthouse here, where he fired one sniper shot, from a distance the length of three football fields. The bullet smashed through double-paned glass, hitting Weller, a family court judge, squarely in the chest.

During sentencing the judge was very emotional particularly when discussion the Mack’s 10-year-old daughter Erika.
