(13WHAM) Perinton, N.Y. - A man was sentenced to 25 years in state prison Monday for the stabbing death of his wife inside their Perinton Home. Douglas Irish, 57, pleaded guilty last month to the lesser charge of manslaughter.
Irish killed his wife Patricia in September 2011 and then tried to kill himself.
Surviving members of Patricia Irish's family, who have custody of the victim's three children, supported the plea agreement.
Irish had nothing to say before sentencing.
In court Monday, Judge Doyle said to Irish, "I can't fathom how your actions don't devastate you. These children's lives have been changed forever."
Orders of protection were also issued for the children.
