Man who killed wife in front of kids gets life sentence


An Ottawa man who murdered his estranged wife in front of their children in 2008 has been sentenced to life in prison.

Demetrios Angelis asphyxiated 42-year-old Lien Li Angelis and rolled her body in a rug before calling police.

Angelis and the two children — an eight-year-old girl and a three-year-old boy — were at the apartment on Sunday, June 8, 2008 when police arrived to discover the body.

Angelis, who was found guilty of second-degree murder, will be eligible for parole after 12 years, minus time served.

The two children remain in foster care, according Angelis's lawyer John Ale.
