Benzie Man Sentenced to Life in Prison

Posted: Updated:

A Benzie County man who murdered his wife has been sentenced to life in prison.

Prosecutors say Deshawn Stanton killed his wife, Stephanie, during an argument in a house in Homestead Township last May.

Stanton pleaded no contest to second degree murder, meaning he doesn't admit guilt but accepts the punishment.

Although he was sentenced to life in prison, he can be considered for parole after 15 years.
