Former fitness guru sentenced to five years for killing wifePosted: Updated:
Aggravating circumstances added
Jurors speak out in Grant case - After finding former fitness guru to the stars Doug Grant guilty of manslaughter, the jury delivered another blow.
PHOENIX -- Former fitness guru Doug Grant was sentenced to five years behind bars for the death of his wife.
Last month, Grant was found guilty of manslaughter for the 2001 drowning death of his wife, Faylene, in their Gilbert home.
A week later, the jury added three aggravating circumstances to their verdict. They ruled the murder was committed in a cruel fashion, that Grant did it for monetary gain, and that the murder caused emotional harm to Faylene's family.
Grant's current wife and other family members pleaded with the court Friday morning to give him probation, but the judge disagreed.
