LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Henderson psychologist accused of killing his attorney wife in 2015 is due to be sentenced Tuesday for her death.
Gregory “Brent” Dennis, 59, signed an Alford plea in January to voluntary manslaughter in the death of 48-year-old Susan Winters. By signing the plea, he admits he would likely be convicted at trial. He is facing a sentence of three to 10 years but the judge will ultimately decide the length of the sentence.
When Winters died in January 2015, there was a lethal amount of oxycodone in her system, and a deadly dose of chemical from antifreeze. Initially, her death was ruled a suicide but her family, who was suspicious about her death and suspicious of Dennis, hired private investigators and a law firm to look into the case.
