Greensburg, KS: Mullinville man's sentencing set for Nov. 16 in wife's death

GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man convicted of shooting his wife to death will be sentenced Nov. 16.

Mark H. Ralstin faces up to 14 years in prison for the November 2009 death of 35-year-old Bobbie Jo Ralston. He was convicted in July of intentional second-degree murder.

The victim was shot six times as she sat in a vehicle in the yard of the couple's home near Mullinville in rural Kiowa County on Nov. 9, 2009. After the shooting, Ralstin drove to his sister's home in Sylvia, where he was arrested.

During the trial, the Ralstins' daughter Kimberly testified about seeing her father shoot her mother.
