KENTWOOD, Mich. (AP) — A man who strangled his pregnant wife has been sentenced to at least 33 years in prison.
Amber Guichelaar was a well-liked teacher in Kentwood, near Grand Rapids. She was killed at her home November 2020.
Richard Guichelaar pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. He told the judge that he’s been unable to find words to express his “sorrow, remorse and regret” for what happened.
Guichelaar says his wife was a “wonderful human being.” He will be eligible for parole consideration after 33 years in custody.
