Man convicted of trying to kill wife gets 38 years in prison

ROCKVILLE, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man convicted last year of repeatedly trying to kill his wife has been sentenced to 38 years in prison.

The Hartford Courant reports ( ) John Corver of Bolton was found guilty Nov. 25 of multiple counts of first-degree assault, first-degree kidnapping and attempted murder in a trial before a judge. He was sentenced on Thursday.

Authorities say 53-year-old Corver stabbed his then-wife, Kim Langlands, repeatedly in April 2014 as they drove along Interstate 384 in Bolton and then again in Coventry.

A judge convicted Corver of attempted murder for the stabbings and for placing a wick in the fuel tank of the car they were riding in.

Corver was sentenced to prison in 2002 for running down his then-girlfriend and her friend in 2000.
