Calvert Sentenced to Life

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of stabbing a Dixon man to death in a drug-fueled rage last December will spend the rest of his life in prison.

32 year old Nathan Calvert was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences in Sanders County District Court today.

In September, Calvert admitted to stabbing Doug Morigeau 54 times to death and attempting to kill Morigeau's wife, Cheryl, by slitting her throat all while under the influence of a synthetic marijuana called "spice."

"It was an emotional day of testimony here inside Sanders County District Court, but family members of the victim say a life sentence, means they finally have closure."

State Prosecutors called Doug Morigeau's three siblings to the stand, all of whom agreed with prosecutors' suggested sentence of life in prison without parole.

"My brother didn't deserve to die like this.  You know, he took away something that I'll never get back. And to have his life taken away at that age, that's something I can't… I don't understand."

Court documents show Calvert stabbed Morigeau to death and attempted to kill his wife.  After smoking spice for two weeks straight, and going off his medication.  Morigeau's wife, Cheryl, also spoke, despite only having the use of one vocal chord after Calvert slit her throat.

"The hardest part is the loss of security and feeling safe, though."

The defense argued Calvert should receive treatment for his Schizo-Affective Disorder and chemical dependency in a mental hospital.

"For the most part, if individuals cooperate with their medication program, we can keep these symptoms at a residual level."

But, in the end, Judge Kim Christopher said she had to deliver justice to Morigeau's family, and sentenced Calvert to two consecutive life terms in prison.

"I'm glad that she recognized that he needs to be kept off the streets."
