UPDATE: Mark Bucki sentenced to life in prison, but will be allowed to apply for early release after serving 35-years

 

 

MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- The man convicted in the death of his wife in Merrill will find out his sentence today.

Mark Bucki is facing a mandatory thirty year sentence for the 2013 death of Anita Bucki.  He was convicted on three felony counts including first degree intentional homicide earlier this year. The only decision is whether or not he'll be allowed release after that sentence is up.

Bucki had attempted to get his attorneys fired in May, claiming that they had not properly represented him in the case and allowed a detective to tell lies on the witness stand. Bucki believes he would be a free man if his attorneys followed his instructions. Judge Jay Tlusty denied that request.

The sentencing hearing starts this morning at 9 am.
