35 years for Grantham man who killed wife over her affair with former student
"It was a contested sentencing hearing. The defense asked for 20 to 50 years, and we asked for 35 years to life," said Jeffery A. Strelzin, senior assistant attorney general.
"It was a very long hearing with a lot of people. It was very emotional. The defendant's eldest daughter spoke, and it was a very moving statement on her part," Strelzin said.
Natalie Perriello's family supported both the plea and the prosecution's recommended sentencing, Strelzin said.
Perriello told the operator he had lost his cool and had just shot his wife. He was waiting outside for police when the first officer arrived.
The couple's 3-year-old son was in the bedroom, and the officer heard screaming and yelling coming from children in other rooms of the house.
The mother of four children, ages 3 to 12 at the time, taught computer technology and personal finance at Lebanon High School.
The couple was estranged prior to the shooting, Perriello had moved out of the home several weeks earlier, but the day of the murder the couple had gone to a marriage counselor and he had returned to the home, staying in a separate bedroom apart from his wife.
