And if half of this story is true, this particular husband deserves that and more:
Coeburn man guilty of raping his wifeAll I have to say is this:
By Jodi Deal, Coalfield Progress
A Coeburn man has been found guilty of multiple charges of raping and abusing his own wife over a span of 25 years, and a Wise County jury has recommended that he be sentenced to life in prison plus 377 years.
According to special prosecutor Tim McAfee, sentencing is set for Aug. 25.
“When you first hear about this, that he’d been raping her for the entire marriage, you might be a little dubious. But when you hear the details of what happened, and the testimony from the wife and daughter, it becomes readily apparent that this was a lifetime of torture,” McAfee said.
The indictment also alleged that the man’s adult daughter acknowledged that he sexually abused her as well between 1983 and 1989, and she witnessed many acts of abuse against her mother.
All the charges stem from an investigation launched after a June 2008 domestic dispute turned violent, with the wife shooting the man three times — in the left shoulder, in the left arm and in the stomach — with a .38-caliber handgun.
In the indictment, McAfee alleged the husband physically and sexually abused the wife, including forced acts of vaginal, oral and anal intercourse, forced sodomy and assault and battery “on a regular and continued basis throughout the marriage.”
McAfee confirmed that the malicious wounding charges are a result of bleeding from the wife’s eyes and ears, injuries he says she sustained while being choked during the incident that alerted authorities to the ongoing abuse. [link requires paid subscription]
Give him the chair.
Give her a medal.
And some more ammunition.
