PHOENIX – An Arizona man who decapitated his wife and their pet dogs before mutilating himself by gouging out one of his eyeballs was sentenced to 29 years in prison Friday.
What in the hell was this freak thinking?
According to Maricopa County Superior Court records, the sentencing came after Wakefield pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and two counts of animal cruelty.
“Per the plea, Judge Ronda Fisk sentenced Kenneth Wakefield to 29 years in prison for second degree murder and two counts of animal cruelty.”

Investigators say Wakefield killed Trina Heisch and their two dogs and stashed the bodies in a closet.
They say he then gouged out one of his own eyes and cut off his left hand at the forearm.
The grisly scene was discovered July 25 by a neighbor who went to check on Heisch and said Wakefield came to the door naked, covered in blood.
“I just wanted to say I’m sorry,” Wakefield said during the sentencing, the Arizona Republic reported. “I can’t change it. I suffer also. She was my best friend.”
Wakefield had recently been released from a mental hospital before the attack, according to the Arizona Republic. He and Heisch had met in a mental hospital where both were serving time for stabbing relatives, the newspaper reported.
Wakefield received 25 years for the second-degree murder charge and two years for each of the dogs he killed, according to the Arizona Republic.
