Arthur Schirmer sentenced to life in prison for killing 2nd wife
A former pastor will be spending the rest of his life in prison for killing his second wife.
Arthur Schirmer was sentenced to life without parole Monday morning in Monroe County.
Schirmer was convicted in January for killing his second wife, Betty Jean, in 2008, and then trying to cover it up with a staged car crash.
Schirmer still faces murder charges in the death of his first wife, Jewel, in 1999. That trial is expected to start in November in Lebanon County.
