CALGARY — A Calgary judge has reserved his decision on a sentence for a man who deliberately drove over his wife with a U-Haul during an argument and left her to die alone on a snow-covered street.
Ronald Candaele was convicted of second-degree murder a year ago in the 2020 killing of Melissa Rae Blommaert.
Candaele is already facing a life sentence, but a Crown lawyer says he wants him in custody for 18 years before he's eligible for parole because of a long, terrible cycle of domestic violence.
His lawyer argued the parole eligibility should be in the 10-year range.
Candaele reported his wife missing, but court heard she got out of the vehicle during a fight and, as she stormed away, he drove the vehicle into his wife, turned around and drove past her as she lay dying in the street.
Justice Blair Nixon is to deliver his sentence Aug. 31.

Willie Burden stands out for George Hopkins in over half a century with Stampeders .
George Hopkins has seen many players come and go during his 51 years with the Calgary Stampeders, but none impacted him more than the late Willie Burden. Burden spent eight seasons as a running back with Calgary (1974-81). He was the CFL's outstanding player in 1975 after rushing for a then league-record 1,896 yards. When Burden retired in June 1982, he was Calgary's fifth-leading rusher with 6,234 yards. The Stampeders retired his No. 10 in 1982 then added Burden to their Wall of Fame in 1992. Nine years later, Burden was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
