A Petaluma man faces up to three years in prison for reportedly helping his wife commit suicide. He pleaded no contest in court yesterday to charges connected to his wife’s suicide at a Bodega Bay motel in January. The man’s attorney says the pair got married so she could get cheap medications through his insurance for pain. After losing the insurance she reportedly couldn’t get the pain medications she needed so the pair made the suicide plan. The man is slated to be sentenced in about three weeks.
