LOS ANGELES -- A chef who told police he cooked his wife's body for four days in boiling water is set to be sentenced for his murder conviction.
David Viens has a sentencing hearing scheduled for Friday morning in a Los Angeles courtroom.
The 49-year-old Viens was convicted of murder in September of the killing of his 39-year-old wife, Dawn Viens, in late 2009. Her body has never been found.
In a recorded interrogation from a hospital bed presented by prosecutors during the trial, Viens can be heard saying he cooked her body for four days to get rid of evidence. Authorities said he leapt off an 80-foot cliff after learning he was a suspect in her disappearance.
Viens, who attended trial in a wheelchair, could get 15-years-to-life in prison.
