A La Crosse County jury believed the prosecution when members were told 47-year-old Todd Kendhammer really killed his wife before trying to make it look like an accident.

Kendhammer was sentenced to the mandatory life-in-prison after his conviction of first-degree intentional homicide charges Friday. The West Salem man won't be eligible for parole until March 9th, 2048. Barbara Kendhammer was killed in September 2016. The defense had claimed a pipe fell from a passing truck, smashed through the windshield and hit her in the head.
