Totem Pole Killer Sentenced

(NNCNOW.com) -- A 51 year northern Minnesota man has been sentenced for killing his wife with a totem pole.

Carl Muggli was sentenced to 15 years behind bars, the maximum allowed under court guidelines.

Muggli pleaded guilty earlier this month to an amended 2nd degree murder in the November 2010 death of his wife.

Court records say the deadly incident stemmed from an apparent argument between Muggli and his wife over an alleged internet romance.
