    NY - Allen, 50, & Maria Lockrow, 59, murdered, Lansingburgh, 20 Aug 2014


    Neighbors in a quiet corner of Lansingburgh were rocked Wednesday, August 20, by the brutal beating deaths of Michael Allen Lockrow and his wife, Maria, in their 1st Avenue home.

    They were killed by intruders who kicked down their door just after 2 a.m. Police are looking for two men driving a blue 2013 Ford Escape SUV registered to the Lockrows' address.

    Veteran officers said the crime scene was among the most savage they have seen.

    A Rensselaer County grand jury on Friday indicted two men in the fatal beating of a couple in their Lansingburgh home in August... Jacob Heimroth and Daniel Reuter, both 33, were indicted on multiple counts of murder, burglary and grand larceny.

    "This was a brutal crime," said First Assistant District Attorney Carmelo Laquidara. "We are ready for trial. The evidence is strong."

    Curious what evidence there is connecting these two to the murders, however very thankful they are in custody and facing multiple charges.

    A Rensselaer County judge has denied a prosecutor's request to force two men accused of killing a Lansingburgh couple to give DNA samples. Assistant District Attorney Shane Hug asked Judge Andrew Ceresia to compel Jacob Heimroth and Daniel Reuter, both 33, to submit to swabs of the inside of their mouths...

    Officials with knowledge of the case said Reuter knew Allen Lockrow from the Lansingburgh OTB parlor where Lockrow went regularly to bet on races. In an Aug. 22 interview with the Times Union, Maria Lockrow's brother, Thaddeus Pietrak, said police should be looking at the OTB angle because there was talk that Lockrow had hit it big on a race.

    Rumors about the size of the win were being exaggerated on the street, Pietrak said. "He had an uncashed $600 winning ticket," Pietrak said at the time. "It was still in his wallet."

    Hopefully, justice will now be served.

    Jacob Heimroth took the witness stand during an hearing to suppress statements and video and radio recordings made when he was arrested. Sept. 1, 2014 in Lansingburgh...

    Heimroth was indicted twice. The first time Judge Andrew Ceresia dismissed the indictment for lack of sufficient evidence. Heimroth is now going to trial on the second indictment.

    Heimorth's co-defendant Daniel Reuter pleaded guilty in April 2015 to two counts of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree burglary for his role in the Lockrows' deaths.
