Breaking news tonight, the Jury has concluded that Trooper Kevin Foley is guilty of all charges in the murder case of Dr. John Yelenic. Kevin Foley will be sentenced in June. First degree murder carries a lifetime sentence in the state of Pennyslvania. The defense plans to appeal!
Although justice has finally been served in the almost three year old case, it doesn't change the fact that a bright young life was taken well before his time. It's a relief to know that a murderer will not be walking the streets, and now our friend John can rest in peace the third anniversay of his death April 13th!
I had expected to hear more from the defense, including testimony from Dr. Yelenic's ex-wife Michele. But it wasn't happening. I just can't imagine anyone inflicting such a horric crime against another person. There was sure some incriminating evidence presented in John's trial. Now we wait for the next sequence of events which will lead us to the sentencing! There is also a wrongful death suit filed by John Yelenic's family, against Trooper Foley, and Dr. Yelenic's ex-wife Michele.
