BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - 90-year-old John Bunz pleaded guilty to first degree manslaughter Wednesday, admitting to bludgeoning his wife approximately 30 times.

Amherst Police found 89-year-old Virginia Bunz dead in the couples Amberleigh Retirement Community home last March.

Bunz is scheduled to be sentenced on September 7, and could face a maximum of 25 years in prison, though some discussion from the District Attorney's office indicate they may only ask for 20 years.
