Convicted wife killer Forty-six year old Glenford "Bucket" Bermudez was finally sentenced today- after pleading down to manslaughter two weeks ago.
Justice Adolph Lucas sentenced him to 20 years in prison. Justice Lucas subtracted 9 years, 10 months and 18 days from the sentence for time served. That leaves him with a little over 10 years left in jail.
In arriving at the sentence, Justice Lucas said he took into consideration the aggravating factors and the mitigating factors as well as an impact statement from the children of the deceased.
On November 22, 2007. Bermudez swerved his car into a taxi driven by his wife and forced her to a stop. He then shot in her head with a shotgun at close range.
Bermudez was convicted of murder and was sentenced to life imprisonment. He appealed and the Court of Appeal ordered a retrial. He then pled guilty to the lesser charge of Manslaughter. Bermudez was represented by attorney Oscar Selgado while the Crown was represented by Crown Counsel Shanice Lovell.
