Husband convicted of conspiring to murder wife after foster daughter he was sleeping with ‘stabbed her 150 times with a kitchen knife’
Adultry never seems to end up well… Kevin Knoefel slept with his foster daughter then teaches her how to murder his wife, wicked wicked.
A man accused of having sex with his teenage foster daughter was convicted today of conspiring with her to kill his wife. Prosecutors told jurors that Kevin Knoefel, 43, showed his foster daughter Sabrina Zunich how to stab his wife and that he wanted her out of the picture but was afraid he’d lose custody of their 3-year-old daughter if they divorced. Zunich then allegedly stabbed Lisa Knoefel to death in her bed.
A Lake County jury convicted Knoefel on six counts of sexual battery, three counts of complicity to aggravated murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder. The father appeared emotionless as he was handcuffed and led out of the courtroom by police officers, according to The News-Herald. Knoefel, who plans to appeal, could face 25 years to life in prison.
Zunich, now 19, testified last week that she put on a ski mask and fatally stabbed 41-year-old Lisa Knoefel in her bed as she fought back in November 2012, when she was 17. Prosecutors said Zunich stabbed and cut her more than 150 times with the 10-inch serrated knife. Zunich said she had fallen in love with her foster father and feared he would commit suicide if she didn’t carry out their plot to kill his wife. Knoefel picked out the knife and showed her how to plunge it in once and twist, she said. She hid the weapon under her bedroom dresser in the home in Willoughby Hills, west of Cleveland. She said they were carrying on a sexual relationship and discussed several plans to kill Lisa Knoefel, including shooting her and making it look like a burglary, or finding a hit man.
Wait what? You premeditated different murder options and that was the option you chose? Not only is Zunich and her foster daddy evil and disgusting… they are also real darn stupid.
