Holton man sentenced in murder of wife

(KNZA)--A Holton man convicted of killing his wife has been sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison.

Jackson County Attorney Shawna Miller tells MSC News that 67-year-old George Fleshman, Jr. was sentenced Friday to 9 years and 9 months for second-degree murder.  

Miller says Fleshman will also have to serve 36-months post-release supervision and register as a violent offender.

A Jackson County jury found him guilty last month of killing his 62-year-old wife, Elizabeth, at the couple's residence in October 2015.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse says an autopsy showed she died due to trauma to the spleen.

Fleshman was arrested in March of 2016 following an investigation by the Sheriff's Department.
