Prosecutors Want at Least 15 Years for U.S. Couple in Bali Suitcase Murder

Prosecutors in the case of a U.S. couple accused of murder on the Indonesian holiday island of Bali on Tuesday called for the pair to be sentenced to at least 15 years in prison. Chicago-area residents Tommy Schaefer and Heather Mack are being tried separately over the premeditated murder of Mack's mother, Sheila von Wiese-Mack, whose battered body was found stuffed into a suitcase in August of last year. Prosecutor Eddy Wijaya told the Denpasar District Court, "According to the prosecution, the defendant Tommy Schaefer is proven to have committed (premeditated murder)."
