Thomas Barton. conviction upheld

An appeals court is upholding the conviction of a Tri-State police officer for the rape and murder of his wife.

Thomas Barton was convicted 2 years ago in Warren County for his role in his wife's death. Barton was a police lietuenant in Springboro, and he wanted to scare his wife Vickie so she would want to move from his farm outside of the city, into the city limits, allowing him to apply to become chief of police.

Oh my gosh, this story was on the other night on one of those Forensic Files type shows. I thought the whole thing was so sick and disturbing. I can't believe someone can do that to their wife. I know HE didn't kill her, but his selfish and horrible actions led to her death. I am glad the conviction is being upheld.
