Husband admits to murder

Another Monday blog, another disturbing story in the U.S.

Former University of Pennsylvania professor Rafael Robb pleaded guilty Monday to voluntary manslaughter for killing his wife as she wrapped Christams presents last year.

During a fight with his wife about on upcomming trip she planned for herself and her daughter, Robb said he "lost it."

The CNN report I read stated he faces a prison sentence of no more than seven years. That seems surprising. I wish the article included why he could only face up to seven years. A FOX report I found said guidelines call for a term of four to seven years of prison time, I just wish the guidelines would have been explained in detail.

Here is the sadest part of the story - a tearful Robb apologizing to his daughter.

"I know she liked her mother. ... And now she doesn't have a mother," he said.
