Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio A man who shot his wife 16 times has been sentenced to six years to life in prison. The woman's ex-husband thinks the minimum sentence should have been more severe.

A judge calls the murder Stephen Walker committed "dastardly and vindictive."

The victim's ex-husband, Bevis Kennedy, was in the courtroom listening as the court asked Walker if he had anything to say abut the murder of Cassandra Ryan Walker. But Stephen Walker said, "I don't know what to say."

"I think he shows no remorse whatsoever. He still is refusing to accept responsibility for what he did," Kennedy said.

The shooting happened on April 1, 2006.

The sentence was six years to life in prison, and not 15 years to life, because the crime was committed just a few weeks before the law was changed.
