The price for a life taken

14 months and a day after my oldest friend was brutally murdered by her husband he has been sentenced to 7 years.

The knife she was killed with broke into three pieces.

7 years.

It leaves me speechless.
While the self-defence argument was dismissed the judge lowered the initial 9 years sentence to 7 years, because of the fact that he has been depressed and was distressed by the ongoing divorce.

7 years.
7 years for a life.

It feels like a slap in the face all over again.
I can only hope for karma.
