Man who murdered wife on Christmas to be sentenced

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Christopher Saenz, the man found guilty of murdering his wife, Hilary Saenz back on Christmas day 2013 will be sentenced Friday. 

Back on July 6 a judge weighed all of the factual findings and determined Hilary Saenz did not have a seizure disorder, like the defense team had stated.

"The court carefully considered all of the facts and she understood what was going on in that household. We are very satisfied with the verdict. The family is glad that Hilary's death was seen for what it was. This was an act of domestic violence, multiple acts of domestic violence and they're very happy with the results," said Assistant Attorney General, Deborah Cashman.

At the time of Hilary's death, she had multiple bruises throughout her body, all in different stages of healing. The medical examiner for the state testified that the bruises on Hilary's body were due to blunt force trauma.

Throughout the trial, Saenz maintained his innocence, he repeatedly told investigators that his wife died after suffering from a seizure.
