Harold Henthorn sentence
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge R. Brooke Jackson imposed the mandatory sentence against Harold Henthorn, who was convicted of murder.
Henthorn’s second wife, Toni Henthorn, plummeted 130 feet in a remote, rocky area of the park in September 2012. Harold Henthorn says he took her there to celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary.
Prosecutors say the 59-year-old man wanted to collect $4.7 million in life insurance policies she didn’t know existed.
Harold Henthorn sentence handed down, first death under investigation
Authorities continue to investigate the death of Henthorn’s first wife, who was crushed when a car slipped off a jack while they were changing a flat tire in 1995. Harold Henthorn hasn’t been charged in that death.
During the sentencing he took his chance to speak and maintained his innocence.
According to the Daily Mail he said: ‘I did not kill Toni or anyone.’
During the trial some jurors said he sounded too cool for a man trying to save his wife’s life.
