Sentencing Set In Ohio Wife's Hospital Bed Killing
Dec. 13, 2013: Akron, OH - John wise, 68 of Massillon, who was convicted of shooting and killing his wife as she lay in her hospital bed will be sentenced Friday.

Wise said he acted out of love when he killed his debilitated wife beause she appeared to be in pain after suffering from an aneuysm.
Wise's defense attorney Paul Adamson has said that no matter what the sentence is they intend to pursue clemency from the governor and "will be seeking public support from those who sympathize with John and this situation."
The judge handling the case in Akron has told attorneys the sentence must fit within legal limits.
