Man Pleads Guilty In Stabbing Death Of Wife

Posted: Updated:
CHATHAM COUNTY, GA -

Life in prison - that's what awaits 48 year old Kenneth Sanders, who accepted a plea deal today in Chatham County Superior Court. Sanders pleaded guilty to murder in the stabbing death of his wife back in 2011. Police said 28 year old Nancy Bruin was brutally stabbed to death in front of her three small children at the couple's home in the Rice Creek Subdivision in Port Wentworth. One of the children escaped the home and ran next door to a neighbor's home. When police arrived, they found Bruin dead on the floor and Sanders threatening suicide with the knife. Police had to taser Sanders before taking him into custody. He had been charged with felony murder, possession of a knife in committing a crime and multiple counts of cruelty to children. The other charges were dropped with the negotiated guilty plea to murder.
