CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - Lloyd Neurauter will be spending the rest of his life behind bars without parole.
Area residents believe justice was served after Neurauter's sentencing Tuesday morning.
"I feel that it's a good sentence for the crime he committed, and he does deserve that for the heinousness of the crimes that he did," Corning resident, Aaron Interlicchia, said.
"I don't believe in the death penalty, so life without parole seems very fitting because he was involving his daughter, and they tried to cover the situation up," Lisa Wheeler, a Horseheads resident, said.
"He should get more, he should get more and he deserves it," Gaetano Ruggiero, said. "Anyone who kills their wife (ex-wife) or plots with their daughter to kill their mother, something's wrong with them."
Back in October, Lloyd pleaded guilty to first-degree murder of his ex-wife, Michele Neurauter. He and his daughter, Karrie Neurauter, staged the scene to look like a suicide.
According to Lloyd's testimony, he strangled Michele in her bedroom on Dwight Ave. in Corning.
Karrie pleaded guilty to helping her father in her mother's murder. She currently awaits sentencing.
