Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The sentencing date has been set for an Upper Peninsula man convicted of killing his wife in December.
35-year-old Nima Nassiri of Dollar Bay will be sentenced on November 5th in Houghton County Circuit Court.
Nassiri was found guilty of second degree murder earlier this month for beating his wife, Sanaz Nezami, who later died from the injuries she sustained.
A Sheriff’s detective had testified that during the course of attacking her, Nassiri swept the feet out from underneath the 27-year-old Nezami and struck her head several times against the floor.
He faces up to life in prison.
