Appeals Court Upholds Goffinet’s Prison Sentence

Goffinet Due in Court Thursday_-1928160116730867907
The prison sentence will stand for the man convicted of killing his pregnant wife outside a former Evansville restaurant. The Indiana Court of Appeals upholds Anthony Goffinet’s 115 year sentence.

In June 2012, he fatally stabbed his pregnant wife, Kathleen, outside the now shuttered Lone Star Steakhouse on N. Green River Rd.

It was the first time in Vanderburgh County that a 2009 Indiana law was used, which considered termination of pregnancy as a reason for enhancing one’s sentence.
