Darren Mack gets 40 years to life in prison for murder

A Reno judge has sentenced Darren Mack to life with the possibility of parole for the murder of his wife.

Mack received life with the possibility of parole after 20 years for the murder of his wife Charla and 20 years with the possibility of parole after 8 for the attempted murder of Judge Chuck Weller. Those sentences will run consecutively.

He also received a sentence of 20 years with the possibility of parole after 8 years for the use of a deadly weapon in the commission of the crimes.



The sentence, handed down by Judge Douglas Herndon represents the maximum that Mack could have received for the crimes under a plea agreement reached with prosecutors.

Mack had no physical reaction to the sentence.
