By BBN Staff: Glenford “Bucket” Bermudez, 46, was sentenced to prison for 20 years yesterday after pleading guilty to manslaughter two weeks ago.
Bermudez was convicted of killing his wife on November 22, 2007. He drove his car into a vehicle that his wife, Raquel Requena, was driving and when she stopped, he shot her to the head at point blank range.
He was initially sentenced to life in prison but appealed and a re-trial was ordered.
Bermudez then pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.
When he appeared before the court yesterday, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Since he has served 9 years in prison, Bermudez will serve a bit over 10 more years in prison with this new sentence.
