Jacksonville, NC Marine sentenced to life for the murder of his wife.


In Onslow County superior court today, former Marine Corps Sergeant, Christopher Skaggs appeared at 11 a.m. this morning for the guilty plea. Skaggs was charged in the first-degree murder in the multiple-shooting death of his wife Jordan Skaggs back in July of 2014. Him pleading guilty to first-degree murder carries a mandatory life imprisonment sentencing without parole. 18 months ago the defense attorneys requested a plea deal for 25 years and it was denied. The state prosecution said in court today that there was no other way in this, there are only two options, life without parole or the death penalty.
