POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) - A Hudson Valley man has been sentenced to 44 years to life in state prison for killing a 67-year-old woman whose body was found in her home on Thanksgiving Day 2012.
The Poughkeepsie Journal reports (http://pojonews.co/1lZofLe ) that a judge called 37-year-old Justin Curran “a whirlwind of terror” during his sentencing Wednesday. Curran was sentenced for more than a dozen felony convictions, including second-degree murder and assault.
Curran’s lawyer said he was addicted to opiate painkillers at the time of the killing.
