A Florida man has been sentenced to five years in prison for his involvement in a 2014 car wreck that killed his wife, 31-year-old and mother of two, Amanda.
During his trial, Matthew Notebaert explained that he and his wife were enjoying a night out at a concert on March 8, as part of a Valentine’s Day present, the Palm Beach Post reports.
It was their first night out together since their second child, a daughter named Stacey, had been born.
The couple - who relatives have described as being "madly in love" - had snuck a flask into the concert and had been drinking from it all night. On their way home, they pulled over and starting becoming intimate.
Notebaert said that when he started driving again, Amanda was sitting on his lap. The next thing he remembers is waking up in a crashed car next to her body.
