An 82-year-old Alabama man who previously served time for the savage slaying of his mother-in-law has pleaded guilty to killing his wife (in 2000) in a deal with prosecutors that will have him out of prison in just 2 1/2 years.

. . . In 1970, Wilding admitted killing his mother-in-law in her Louisville, Ky., home. . . . He served roughly a year behind bars before then Kentucky Gov. Louie Nunn commuted his sentence, though it's not clear exactly why.
Both killings seem motivated by insurance money. And, in fact, he collected $815,000 for his wife's death. The mother-in-law he killed was not the mother of the wife he killed.
