Dally Sentenced to Life Term in Wife’s Death
A Ventura County grocery store clerk was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without parole for conspiring with a lover to murder his wife.
Superior Court Judge Charles W. Campbell also ordered Michael Dally to pay $10,000 in restitution to the state and $15,000 to the family of his slain wife, Sherri Dally.
Jurors in Dally’s trial deadlocked on whether he should be executed for plotting with lover Diana Haun to kill his wife for financial gain in 1996.
Haun was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without parole for carrying out the murder.
