An Arizona man was sentenced to 29 years in prison for decapitating his wife and their two dogs during a meth induced stupor. After the brutal slayings, Kenneth Wakefield gouged out his eye and chopped off his forearm. On Friday, Wakefield pleaded guilty.
According to AZCentralNews, Wakefield apologized to his wife’s family in Maricopa County Superior Court for the vicious attack on July 25, 2015. Both he and his deceased wife had been in prison and serving ten years for stabbing a relative when they met. At the time of the killing of Trina Heisch, Wakefield stated he was “trying to get the evil out” of her and the dogs.
He received 25 years in prison for the murder, and two years for each of the dog killings. Both small dogs had also been decapitated. Wakefield had been seeking an insanity defense after admitting he had been high on meth and synthetic marijuana. Instead, a plea agreement was made and finalized on Friday sending Wakefield to prison.
