Adams County court records show on Aug. 11, Timothy Bliefnick received one life sentence each for two counts of murder and one count of home invasion causing injury for the death of his wife.
Rebecca Bliefnick was found dead in her home on Kentucky Road Feb. 23, and about two weeks later, Quincy Police arrested Timothy Bliefnick following an extensive investigation. He quickly went to trial and was convicted May 31.
According to WGEM-TV, following the jury’s decision, Rebecca Bliefnick’s sister Sarah Reilly said, "We should not be living in a world where a crime like this is possible. My parents were robbed of their daughter, and as a parent myself I cannot imagine a greater torture."
At his sentencing hearing, WGEM reports Judge Robert Adrian told Bliefnick, "Mr. Bliefnick, you researched this murder, you planned this murder, you practiced this murder, you broke into her house and you shot her. Some of those shots were fired while she was laying on the ground and you did all of that while your children were upstairs at your house, laying snug in their beds."
