BREWSTER -

A man who once lived in Brewster has been convicted of killing his wife more than 20 years ago.

Police say Robert Honsch, 73, has been found guilty of murdering Marcia Honsch in Massachusetts in 1995. He's also facing a murder charge in Connecticut for the death of his 17-year-old daughter that same year.

Honsch vanished in 1995 and was arrested in 2014 in Ohio, where authorities say he was living with a new wife and three children.

He is expected to be sentenced to life in prison without parole.
