Poor child must have been horrified and possibly hearing her mother struggle for her life at the hands of her father. RIP. No leniency for the murderer.

WHAT AN IDIOT!!! Great, now your daughter doesn't have ANY parents. The guy should not only be ashamed of taking a life but also of stealing his daughter's mother away from her and leaving her parentless. SMH!!!!!

It's better to leave than get violent or be on the receiving end.

The chances were that the couple have been having their love and hate relationship for a while. Now that he's ended up strangling his wife to death. What a tragedy! RIP.

Just as worrisome is the daughter's emotional damage or mental trauma. Poor little girl.

No matter how pissed off he was at his wife-even if he hated her- he should have at least thought of his daughter, and how that action would have destroyed her life.. what a muppet.

Let's hope he gets a real sentence..... 25+ years to life in prison.... Instead of a bs 6-10 years suspended sentence. He'll have some excuse.... They always do. Hahaha smh
