TIFFIN - A Tiffin man will be sentenced Thursday in Seneca County Common Pleas Court for trying to kill his ex-wife and her husband.
Donald York, 45, was convicted Friday of two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of aggravated burglary, all with firearm specifications.
On Aug. 28, 2000, York went to the Tiffin home of Alan and Mary Beam and threatened to shoot them. As he took aim, Mr. Beam grabbed the gun and a bullet discharged into a couch.
York had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and testified that he had entered the home intending to kill himself.
