U.S. man sentenced to hang for strangling ex-wife in Malaysia
A Malaysian court sentenced an American to death by hanging on Tuesday after finding him guilty of murdering his ex-wife, his lawyer said. Gerald Wayne Mickelson, 63, was accused of strangling Guilda Mickelson, 62, during an argument at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur in November 2016. Kuala Lumpur High Court rejected Mickelson’s plea of self-defense, lawyer K.A. Ramu told Reuters.
