NEWPORT - 30 years to life in a New Hampshire state prison, that's the sentence for James Robarge on Friday. Robarge was convicted of killing his wife on the day she filed for divorce. The victim's body was found in Unity in July of 2013.
Robarge's children made it clear that despite the sentencing they are looking for closure.
"Everyone needs their parents now I don't have either of them," said Ciera Robarge, the victim's daughter.
"My son wanted nothing to do with me after he lost his Grammy. It took six weeks it took the doctor a counselor his stepfather to get him to come to me again," said Gabrielle Robarge, the victim's daughter.
Gabrielle's son was in the next room as James Robarge beat to death his wife Kelly.
"He didn't call 911, he put her in the trunk of his car and he left her there. Then he dumped her body in a remote location where her body decompose in the elements for nine days and was ravaged by wild animals," said prosecutor Susan Morrell.
The prosecution said during the sentencing that about 50% of New Hampshire homicides stem from some sort of domestic violence and they wanted to send a message with the sentencing of James Robarge.
