It just depends on who you are married to.

A Washington man who killed his wife with poisoned ice cream will spend 25 years in prison.

According to Fox28, David Pettis laced the ice cream with a lethal amount of hydrocodone painkillers before he gave it to his wife, Peggy, in June 2018. Prosecutors say Pettis took out a 150-thousand-dollar life insurance policy three days before his wife died so he could start a romantic relationship with an old high school girlfriend.

The couple’s oldest daughter defended her father to the judge saying his mom was known to crush up the pills herself and her dad’s emotional affair wasn’t proof of the crime.
