Idaho Man Gets Life for Stabbing Wife and Unborn Child

Benito Baeza

SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — A north Idaho man convicted in the fatal stabbing of his wife and unborn daughter late last year has been sentenced to life in prison. The punishment was handed down Monday in the case of 28-year-old Jeremy Keith Swanson of Priest River.

Swanson pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder earlier this year for repeatedly stabbing his wife, Jennifer Marie Bosch-Swanson, in the head and torso with an ice pick and knife. The Bonner County Daily Bee reports Swanson declined to address the court during his hearing Monday.

First District Judge Benjamin R. Simpson said he had no other choice but to order life in prison, saying the crimes were committed with “unspeakable violence.” Two physicians diagnosed Swanson with a case of major depression after his arrest.
