Parole possible for man convicted of killing wife
LA CROSSE - A western Wisconsin man convicted of killing his wife and trying to make her death look like an accident won't be eligible for parole for at least 30 years.

La Crosse County Judge Todd Bjerke sentenced Todd Kendhammer to the mandatory life prison term for first-degree intentional homicide and set parole eligibility at March 9, 2048. The 47-year-old Kendhammer was found guilty in December of killing his wife Barbara in September 2016.
Kendhammer told investigators a pipe fell from a passing truck as he and his wife were traveling in their car, smashed through the windshield and struck Barbara. A jury convictedhim after a nearly two-week trial.

Several family members made statements during Friday's sentencing hearing. While some called for no possibility of parole, most relatives, including one of his children, supported the possibility of parole.
