Sentencing Expected Today in Half Century Old Murder Case


It’s taken over a half-century for some closure, but family of a 7-year-old girl murdered in 1954 may get just that with the sentencing of 73-year-old Jack McCullough today.

 

McCullough was found guilty in the 1957 killing of Maria Ridulph of Sycamore.   He was 17 at the time and known under a different name.

 

McCullough was arrested in Seattle last year after his half-sister convinced police to reopen the case.

 

Sentencing was originally scheduled for November 30th, but McCullough’s lawyers asked for the delay to prepare for the hearing.

 

He could get a life sentence.
