Mass. Man Fatally Stabbed Sleeping Wife with Children Nearby — Then Sent Photos of Dead Body to Friends

A Massachusetts man who fatally stabbed his wife and then sent photos of her deceased body to his friends has been sentenced to life in prison without parole, according to multiple reports.

Christopher Fratantonio, 37, was found guilty of first-degree murder on Friday at Barnstable County Superior Court.

On Feb. 28, 2017, Fratantonio repeatedly stabbed his wife Mary “Molly” Fratantonio while she was asleep in their bed. He then took two photos with his phone and sent them to friends, asking if they would be willing to care for the couple’s 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son.

“He let his own children see their mother’s body torn apart at his hands,” Molly’s brother Ian McClatchey told local newspaper the Cape Cod Times last week.

Fratantonio used a kitchen knife to stab Molly multiple times. When police arrived, the knife was still in her throat.
