December 07, 2017

A Sydney man has been sentenced to jail in the NSW Supreme Court for murdering his wife.

A Sydney man has been jailed for at least 19 years for the murder of his wife, who he claimed had killed herself by jumping on a knife.

A jury in June found Gavin John De Beyer guilty of murdering his partner of 30 years, Sharon Louise Michelutti, while he was subject to an apprehended violence order in February 2016.

Acting NSW Supreme Court justice Peter Hidden on Thursday sentenced the 52-year-old to a maximum sentence of 25 years and a non-parole period of 19 years.
