UPDATE: The judge told Krauseneck that he had been able to live his life for the last 40 years without any restrictions, and Cathy did not have that opportunity, since her murder on February 19, 1982. He said it was time for justice for Cathy, and concluded, “the only just sentence in this matter is a sentence of 25 years in the department of corrections to life.”

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A judge will sentence James Krauseneck on Monday afternoon. Krauseneck is the man convicted of killing his wife with an ax in Brighton back in 1982.

A jury found Krauseneck guilty of murder in September after deliberating for a little more than a day.

The defense argued Cathy Krauseneck was killed after he went to work that morning forty years ago but the jury was not convinced. Krauseneck’s attorney said they plan to appeal the decision.
