Woman Sentenced For Poison Murder, Trying To Kill Daughter

An upstate New York woman has been sentenced to at least 50 years in prison for poisoning her husband with antifreeze and trying to kill her daughter and frame her as the killer.

A judge on Thursday sentenced 41-year-old Stacey Castor to 25 years to life for the murder of David Castor in 2005 and another 25 years for the 2007 attempt on her daughter's life.

Prosecutors say she tried to kill her daughter, Ashley Wallace, with an overdose of drugs and vodka. They say she wrote a bogus suicide note to make it look like the 20-year-old had killed David Castor.

Prosecutors also have implicated Stacey Castor in the death of her first husband, Michael Wallace, in 2000. His body was exhumed in 2007 and investigators concluded he was killed by a chemical found in antifreeze.

That's the same substance that killed David Castor.
