A crazed Spider-Man enthusiast who hacked his wife to death with a samurai sword was sentenced yesterday to 18 1/2 years behind bars.
Family members of Ivor Forbes’ wife, Keisha Denton, were in court yesterday and wanted the killer to explain to them why he attacked his 34-year-old bride in their Pelham Bay apartment on Dec. 7, 2003.
They left without an answer.
Cops responding to the gory scene that fateful day found Forbes at the door, sword in hand and covered in his wife’s blood, declaring, “I am God, you can’t kill me.” They opened fire on the psycho, hitting him in the legs and hand.
In court yesterday, he sat in a wheelchair and said nothing.
His lawyer, Ira Brown, later said that Forbes was psychotic at the time of the killing – as doctors for the defense and prosecution agreed – and can’t explain the attack, which occurred after he lost his job as a computer programmer.
