Fargo man gets 30 years for wife’s murder
FARGO — A Fargo man was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison for murdering his wife in a case in which he initially tried to convince authorities she had died by suicide.
In handing down the sentence for Ronald William Rogers Jr., Cass County District Court Judge Lisa Fair McEvers told Rogers that the life of his wife, Elizabeth, was worth more than the 25-year sentence the prosecution had recommended.
Rogers’ attorney, Ross Brandborg, recommended 17 years.
