UPDATE: Todd Smith sentenced to 59 years in prison
Updated: 5:50pm, April 4, 2017

WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WIFR) -- Todd Smith maintains his innocence as he's sentenced to 59 year years in prison. Although he faced up to life in prison for the murder and concealment of his wife Katrina's body in 2012, 59 years is essentially a life sentence for the 49-year-old.
Smith started and ended his statement reading bible verses all while maintaining his innocence saying he believes he'll get a new trial.

"Although I am not guilty of the acts the state portrayed, I harbor no ill will towards anyone," he said during his allocution statement in court.

Todd smith will spend the rest of his life in prison. The Machesney Park man brutally killed his wife Katrina, beating her repeatedly in October 2012. He called Katrina's murder an evil and senseless tragedy.

"I'm sorry for failing in my role as husband and protector," he said.

Judge Fernando Engelsma had harsh words for Smith calling the crime unfathomable and his efforts in searches for his missing wife a slap in the face to her family and the community.
