LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – A weekend memorial service is planned for a 52-year-old Lawrence man who authorities say was killed by a 19-year-old housemate.
The service for Harold Sasko will take place on Sunday at Christ the King Catholic Church in Topeka.
Sasko was found dead Jan. 17 in the Lawrence house he shared with Sarah B. Gonzales McLinn. She was later arrested in Florida and charged with first-degree murder.
Sasko owned the Lawrence CiCi’s Pizza franchise as well as two more in Topeka. McLinn reportedly had worked for Sasko and had been living in his house since 2012.
McLinn is being held on $1 million bond. If she’s convicted, the Douglas County prosecutor plans to seek a sentence of life without a chance for parole for 50 years.
