REDDING, Calif. (AP) - An Oregon man convicted of killing his aunt and wounding his uncle in a knife attack in Northern California has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Shasta County Superior Court Judge William Gallagher said during Monday’s sentencing hearing that 32-year-old Cody Nash had shown no remorse.
Authorities say Nash slit Candace Watson’s throat twice with a butcher knife and then cut her husband, Bob’s, throat while visiting their Redding home in 2012. He was convicted of first-degree murder and attempted murder last month. Nash’s attorney has said his client was diagnosed with schizophrenia and couldn’t control his actions.
The Record Searchlight of Redding reports (https://bit.ly/1id7vJg) that Bob Watson had someone read a statement for him at the sentencing in which he called Nash despicable.
