SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York woman has been convicted of murdering her husband by poisoning him with antifreeze and then trying to kill and frame her daughter for the death.
The Onondaga County jury found 41-year-old Stacey Castor guilty of murder Thursday for killing her husband, David, in 2005. She faces 25 years to life in prison.
The jury also found Castor guilty of trying to kill her 20-year-old daughter, Ashley Wallace, with drugs and vodka in 2007.
Prosecutors say Castor wrote a bogus suicide note and wanted authorities to think her daughter killed herself after confessing to killing her stepfather. Wallace survived and testified against her mother.
Castor was accused but not charged with poisoning her first husband.
