CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for killing his ailing wife.
A Pinellas County judge sentenced 56-year-old Albert Crandall on Friday. He was tried in May on a charge of second-degree murder, but the jury convicted him of the lesser count of manslaughter.
Authorities say Crandall suffocated his wife, 61-year-old Judith Lee Davis, with a pillow in their St. Petersburg apartment in April 2012 and then tried to kill himself by cutting his wrists.
In an email to his sister, Crandall explained that his wife had been suffering for months, and he was overwhelmed by the medical expenses.
