Delaware Man Gets 35 Years for Killing Daughter's Mother

BEAR, Del. (AP)- A Delaware man who turned himself in to police for killing his daughter's mother has been sentenced to 35 years in prison.           

Thirty-three-year-old Jerry Blankenship was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to second-degree murder and a weapons charge in January. Authorities say he killed 25-year-old Jaclyn Engman last year.           

Engman was his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child.           

Blankenship's attorney, Kathryn van Amerongen, asked for leniency, citing his cooperation with police. She also said the only way he can communicate with his daughter is by sending a letter to her therapist, whose name he doesn't have.           

Engman's mother, Marcia Lynn Engman, says Jacyln Engman "paid the ultimate price for loving him."
