Chef Who Said He Cooked Wife’s Body Sentenced in L.A.


LOS ANGELES (AP) – A chef who told police he cooked his wife’s body in boiling water has been sentenced in Los Angeles to 15 years to life in prison for second-degree murder.

David Viens gave a rambling, 45-minute speech during Friday’s sentencing, saying the story he told police about cooking the body was a lie.

He said he was disoriented at the time after having surgery for injuries he suffered when he jumped off a cliff.

The 49-year-old Viens was convicted in September of killing of 39-year-old Dawn Viens in 2009. Her body was never found.

In a recorded interrogation presented at trial, Viens said he cooked her body for four days to get rid of evidence. Authorities said he leaped off a cliff after learning he was a suspect in her disappearance.
