Judge won't reconsider sentence in beating death

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - December 10, 2008 Rafael Robb was sentenced last month in the beating death of Ellen Robb on Dec. 22, 2006, as she wrapped Christmas presents in their kitchen.

The former University of Pennsylvania economics professor pleaded guilty in November to a charge of voluntary manslaughter.

He filed a motion Dec. 1 seeking to reduce his prison time. Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Paul Tressler denied the motion Tuesday.
