A man convicted of killing his ex-wife was sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Joseph Wayer III was convicted in the 2011 stabbing death of Barbara Sheppard.

Her body was found in an alley near Low Bob's on Lincoln Way East in Mishawaka.

Monday in court, Wayer proclaimed his innocence, while Sheppard's family talked about the impact of the murder on her five and 12-year-old boys with Wayer.

Newscenter 16 was in the courtroom and will have much more reaction from Sheppard's family on Newscenter 16 at 5 p.m..
