MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - An Iraq war veteran and self admitted jealous husband who allegedly gun down his wife, a Wauwatosa Police officer, changed his plea Wednesday to guilty.
30-year-old Benjamin Sebena was scheduled for trial next month on first degree intentional homicide.
He originally pleaded insanity. However, the change in plea came after two doctors found his mental health issues didn’t raise to the level of supporting an insanity plea.
Sebana is accused of emptying his hand gun into his wife, Jennifer Sebena, while she sat in her squad car alone on Christmas Eve, then fired additional shots using her own officer issued gun.
Sebena is facing a mandatory life sentence in prison.
