William Caruth who hails from the Vermont valley has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for strangling and beating his pregnant daughter and hiding her body in a crawl space, in the Bronx.
William Caruth was convicted of manslaughter and had his sentenced handed down Wednesday 3rd October 2018, in the death of Andrea Caruth.
Emotions ran high in a courtroom, where letters from the victim’s fiancé and cousin were read aloud.
The letter from her cousin says William Caruth showed no remorse for what he did.
According to prosecutors, the body of Andrea Caruth was found hidden behind a wall in her father’s closet.
The hammer apparently used in the murder was found by investigators in William Caruth’s car.
Additional evidence was also presented over the course of the trial, included DNA samples taken from beneath the victim’s fingernails.
