Teen to be tried in death of Lawrence businessman

KSAL StaffMay 17, 2014

A 19-year-old Lawrence woman has been order to stand trial for the throat-cutting death of a 52-year-old businessman in the home they shared.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Sarah Gonzales McLinn was bound over on charges of first-degree murder and theft following a preliminary hearing Friday.

McLinn has never denied killing Harold Sasko, whose body was found Jan. 17 by police after McLinn’s family reported her missing. McLinn’s attorney filed a notice of intent Friday to rely on a defense of mental disease or defect.

Police testified Friday that Sasko was bound at the wrists and ankles, with his neck deeply severed from side to side.

McLinn had worked for Sasko at one of three CiCi’s Pizza restaurants he owned in Lawrence and Topeka. She was arrested after the killing in the Florida Everglades.
