Chef Who Cooked Wife Sentenced to 15 Years

Her body has never been found

|

David Viens, the chef who told authorities that he accidentally killed his wife and cooked her body to dispose of it, was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison on Friday.

Viens was convicted last year of second-degree murder in the death of his wife, Dawn. He has since fired his attorney.

He spoke for about 40 minutes in a failed bid to convince Superior Court Judge Rand S. Rubin to give him a new trial.
