( POCATELLO , ID ) – An Idaho  judge has denied a motion to reduce the prison sentence of a Pocatello man accused of killing his wife in 2011. Michael Sparks reportedly killed his estranged wife, Judith Sparks, while their children were in the home. He was given a 20-year fixed sentence, and life intermediate for his wife’s death.
