Doctor eligible for parole in 25 years
By Margie Wuebker
LIMA - Dr. Mark Wangler showed no emotion when jurors returned a guilty verdict Thursday afternoon in his aggravated murder case.
His composure never waned as Allen County Common Pleas Court Judge Richard K. Warren almost immediately imposed a sentence of life in prison with possibility of parole after 25 years. Wangler received credit for eight days served prior to posting a $1 million bond in the wake of his 2009 indictment. The judge also imposed a $25,000 fine. [More]
