Zurkowski Sentenced to Life in Prison

Tuesday morning, a Marathon County judge sentenced Patrick Zurkowski, 40, to life in prison without parole.

Zurkowski is the Spencer man convicted of murdering his wife in October of 2007.

Prosecutors say Zurkowski shoved a ceramic dish down her throat.

Zurkowski's attorney had argued that his client killed June Zurkowski in self-defense after she charged at him with a knife, saying she wanted to kill him.

Prosecutors say there was no way June could have attacked her husband.
