Carey conservation club killer gets life in prison

UPPER SANDUSKY, Ohio — A man who shot and killed two people last year at the Carey Conservation Sportsman’s Association was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole.

Richard L. Clark, Jr., 65, pleaded guilty last month to two counts of aggravated murder in the November deaths of Roger Fredritz, 49, of rural Carey, and Cynthia Hawkinberry, 49, of rural Tiffin.

Wyandot County Common Pleas Judge Kathleen Aubry sentenced him to life in prison without parole on each count plus a total of six years in prison for firearm specifications on the two charges, said prosecuting attorney Jonathan Miller. The prison terms will be imposed consecutively.

“It is the sentence that the state and [the victims’ families] requested,” Mr. Miller said.

Clark is the former fiance of Ms. Hawkinberry.
