HUNTINGDON - A Blair County man will be sentenced for killing his daughter-in-law

Kenneth Leighty pleaded guilty to 3rd degree murder in December.

He copped a deal for 7 to 14 years in jail.

The 66-year-old admitted in a recorded phone conversation he killed Sherry Leighty and buried her on his 150 acre property in Warriors Mark, Huntingdon County.

Authorities and Sherry Leighty's family believe he should serve more time, but the DA says he had to offer Kenneth this deal because they wanted him to lead them to her remains.
