I'm having a hard time remembering the dates, but I got a job at a little drug store here in Rochester around March or April 1982. In February 1982 there had been a murder in Brighton, which is the town where the drugstore was located. The wife was killed with an axe and the husband ended up moving away. My boss's attorney was a guy who was connected pretty well with Brighton police. He told my boss that they were positive the husband killed her, they just didn't have the evidence.
My boss, one of the best human beings I've ever met, knew both of them. His wife and that couple were friends. My boss said any time they went over there, she was very friendly, and he was just quiet and strange. He said he believed the husband did it too.
Well, it appears they finally got the guy. He's on trial in Brighton now, and they must have DNA or something they didn't have in 1982. If it's DNA, it seems like it would be hard to prove because his DNA would be all over the house.
We'll see what happens. I just found out about the trial today. I'll have to start following it.
The defense team of the Brighton man accused of killing his wife with an ax with 1982 returned to court on Wednesday morning.
Forty years after the Brighton ax murder, the trial of James Krauseneck Jr, accused of killing his wife with an ax, is set to begin.
