Man to be sentenced for murdering his wife
A Chesterfield man convicted of killing his wife last summer has been sentenced to 30 years in jail.
56 year-old Richard Parker was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder of his 45 year-old wife Cindy, and 10 additional years for wounding a teenager who tried to stop him from shooting her.
Parker entered a guilty plea in November to a charge of second-degree murder in the shooting of his wife, and no contest to the malicious wounding of Michael Dudley, the 18 year-old who intervened.
The shootings happened in June outside of Pietro’s Pizza on Osborne Road in Chester. Parker drove off after the shootings, but was caught a little while later.
