In an emotionally charged courtroom, Clay Waller told the judge he killed his wife Jacque Waller two years ago.
Now Waller is headed to prison to serve a 20 year sentence. As part of a plea deal, Waller told authorities where he buried his wife's body. He explained how he punched her in the face then strangled her to death.
Jacque's sister, Cheryl Brenneke, read a statement that saying she is unhappy with the sentence, but knows he will get "jailhouse justice". The judge accepted the deal and said Waller did not get what he deserved, but it will have to do.
Officials say he could serve as little as 85 percent of the sentence, but it is not likely.
