Man Who Smothered Wife To Death Sentenced

(Urbana, IL)  —  An Urbana man is spending decades in prison after admitting to killing his wife and hiding her body in the house.  Shaun Thomas received a 45-year sentence on Wednesday.  Prosecutors say he smothered his wife, Jessica Thomas, back in May, then put her body in a tote bin and sealed it with duct tape. Sometime after that, Shaun Thomas signed onto his wife’s Facebook account and posted status updates pretending to be her, according to police.
