San Antonio Express-News (Sunday) - - Metro - By Madison Is­zler STAFF WRITER

A U.S. Army sergeant from San An­to­nio has been sen­tenced to life in prison with­out the pos­si­bil­ity of pa­role for killing his wife with his girl­friend’s help.

A judge on Fri­day also or­dered Sgt. Maliek Kear­ney, 37, to pay $492,800 in resti­tu­tion to the fam­ily of his wife, Kar­lyn Ramirez. Kear­ney was con­victed in Au­gust.

Pros­e­cu­tors said Kear­ney trav­eled from South Carolina to Mary­land in 2015 and shot Ramirez, a sol­dier as­signed to Fort Meade, in her home. He tried to make it look as though she had been sex­u­ally as­saulted, they said. He also put the cou­ple’s 4month-old daugh­ter in her arms.

His girl­friend, Dolores Del­gado, also of San An­to­nio, was sen­tenced in Septem­ber to 17 years in prison. Del­gado tes­ti­fied at trial that she pro­vided the gun used to kill Ramirez and let Kear­ney drive her car on the trip to Mary­land.
