Timothy Stemple, right, enlisted his
girlfriend's 16-year-old cousin to help him kill his wife
years Trisha, left.
On the left is the autopsy
sketch for Richard Yost, who was killed in another, unrelated
murder. Yost was
in fact hit in the back of the head 30 times. The
fatal beating was recorded on video. The damage
to Yost's head is
what can be expected from such a beating.
On the right is the autopsy
sketch for Trisha Stemple. In the Stemple case, the State's star
(and the only alleged eye-witness) testified that he and
Shaun Stemple had struck Trisha Stemple
in the back of her head more
than 30 times, perhaps as many as 40 times.
