    JOHNSON COUNTY, KS (KCTV) — A man who was found in a Lenexa storage unit with his dismembered wife’s body is spending the next eight years in prison.

Justin Rey was sentenced in a Johnson County courtroom Friday to 104 months in prison. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.

Rey was found guilty in January of three felony counts sexual exploitation of a child and misdemeanor counts of child endangerment and contributing to a child’s misconduct.

Despite being found with his wife’s body, Rey did not face any charges in relation to her death. In testimony, Rey said he dismembered the corpse because he feared authorities would take his children.

Rey was scheduled to be sentenced earlier this spring but that was delay when he argued that his case should be thrown out and that his lawyer was incompetent.
