REDDING, Calif. (AP) — An Oregon man convicted of killing his aunt and wounding his uncle in a knife attack in Northern California has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Shasta County Superior Court Judge William Gallagher said during Monday's sentencing hearing that 32-year-old Cody Nash had shown no remorse.

Authorities say Nash slit Candace Watson's throat twice with a butcher knife and then cut her husband, Bob's, throat while visiting their Redding home in 2012. He was convicted of first-degree murder and attempted murder last month. Nash's attorney has said his client was diagnosed with schizophrenia and couldn't control his actions.

The Record Searchlight of Redding reports that Bob Watson had someone read a statement for him at the sentencing in which he called Nash despicable.
