Daly City man convicted of killing wife to be sentenced

A Daly City man was scheduled to be sentenced Monday for stabbing his wife to death while his kids were in the next room.

Last month, Quincy Dean Norton Sr., 36, was found guilty in the cold-blooded killing of his wife, 31-year-old Tamika Norton, on July 22, 2006.

It was his second conviction for the crime. He was first found guilty in May 2008, but was granted a new trial on May 27 of this year after the court determined that his attorney provided inadequate representation, Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

After losing his case a second time, Norton again tried to claim his attorney was the problem, but this time was denied by the court.

Norton remains in custody on no bail status.
