Mom and Son Convicted of Killing Husband, Pouring Acid On His Face
A New York woman and one of her sons were found guilty Tuesday of killing her estranged husband and pouring acid on his face to make identifying him more difficult before the body was dumped in the woods.
The woman, Laura Rideout, 46, and her son, Colin Rideout, 23, were convicted on Tuesday of second-degree murder and evidence tampering for the murder of 50-year-old Craig Rideout, whose body was later found in the Finger Lakes region last year.
According to prosecutors, the deceased was strangled and beaten inside his home on July 20, 2016.
This was the exact time the couple were going through a contentious divorce.
