IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. — Seth Larson, the man convicted of dismembering his girlfriend’s body in Irondequoit, was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison on Thursday.

He was sentenced after a jury found him guilty on January 23 of the second-degree murder of Lisa Shuler. He was also found guilty of tampering with physical evidence and concealment of a human corpse.

Irondequoit Police found Shuler’s dismembered body in May 2021 in the backyard of the couple’s home on Culver Road and found some of her remains in Duran Lake. Authorities say Larson fled the area and was later tracked down in West Virginia a month after the murder.

During the trial that lasted two weeks, the officer who responded to the home testified that Schuler’s body was covered by a tarp that was infested with flies. He went to the home after a friend of the couple couldn’t reach Larson or Shuler by phone and no one answered the door.
