Man who strangled wife gets 11 years in prison


A man who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the strangulation of his wife has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Daniel Wellington, 56, of Knapp Avenue, drew the sentence Tuesday from Judge Maureen A. Sweeney of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Wellington was initially charged with murder, which carries 15 years to life in prison, in the Aug. 5, 2011, death of his 44-year-old wife, Doris, in their residence.

However, he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter, with the prosecution recommending a 10-year prison.

Wellington will be on parole for five years after he leaves prison.

He has no prior criminal record.

This murderer gets 11 years for the strangulation of his wife, whereas an Amish bishop gets 15 years for knowing that his sons conducted unwanted hair cuts. This is justice?!

Mahoning county justice. We had a chance to get rid of this plea bargain prosecutor. But the challenger got in trouble for making a muslim work on Fridays.
@Attis - you are 100% correct. Where's the justice? Maybe the wife was a bad cook or something. I know one thing. Next time I go to my barber Carmen the Butcher, I'm going to show him that article about getting 15 yrs. for a bad haircut.
