From today's Seattle Times:
The quote from her husband:
"The real tragedy is that deaths such as Alef's have become commonplace, said her former husband, Allan Alef.
"This is happening all over the place and there's no outrage about it," he said."
I think this article may show that the judge was paying attention to the letters she received about this case...she sentenced him to the longest sentence she could, which wasn't very much.
He'll be out just in time for the holidays. She won't.
