MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - An Iraq War veteran will find out Friday if he’ll have any chance at freedom, after he killed his wife while she was working as a Wauwatosa police officer last Christmas Eve.
30-year-old Ben Sebena is scheduled to be sentenced at 1:30 p.m. in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.
He’ll get a prison term, but the judge can set a minimum date for a supervised release.
Prosecutors have recommended at least 50 years before a release can be considered. He pleaded insanity at first, but he changed his plea to guilty after two doctors found that his mental illness was not severe enough to justify a ruling of insanity.
Sebena was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide after he ambushed and shot his 30-year-old wife Jennifer, right after she left a break room at the Wauwatosa downtown fire station early last December 24th.
