WOBURN, Mass. (AP) — A Framingham man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for fatally stabbing his wife in an argument over the paternity of her baby.
Twenty-seven-year-old Kyle Alleyne did not react after he was convicted of first-degree murder Wednesday in Middlesex Superior Court.
Prosecutors said Alleyne killed 19-year-old Heather Alleyne in their apartment after he learned was not the father of her newborn baby.
Alleyne testified his own defense that he found her dead after coming home from a night of drinking. He said he tried to flee to Mexico because he knew he would be the prime suspect. He was arrested in Texas about 10 days after the slaying.
Alleyne testified he had a private ceremony before he fled, wrapping his wife’s body in her favorite blanket and setting some of her belongings near the body.
