VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) _ A northern Indiana man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison after pleading guilty to killing his estranged wife by repeatedly shooting her with a high-powered rifle.
Fifty-six-year-old Frederick Cashner Jr. was sentenced Thursday after a Porter County judge accepted his plea in Cynthia Cashner's April 2011 murder. The 50-year-old was fatally shot at her Portage business, the Mystic Moon Herbal Shoppe.
Porter County Deputy Prosecutor Cheryl Polarek tells The Times of Munster the plea agreement bars Cashner from appealing, which brings an end to the case for the victim's family.
Cynthia Cashner's son, Matthew Hooper, told the court Thursday he can't imagine what his mother went through in her final moments. He says her Easter Sunday murder has forever ruined the holiday for his family.
