Anthony Rocco Franklin Sentencing Postponed

The sentencing for convicted murderer Anthony Rocco Franklin which was scheduled for Monday in Columbia County Court has been postponed until December 27th at 9:00 am because Franklin is hospitalized with an undisclosed medical condition. Franklin was convicted back on October 16th for the 2012 murder of his ex-son-in-law, 46-year-old Frank Spencer, at Spencer’s home in Hemlock Township. Franklin is facing a mandatory sentence of life without parole. Franklin’s daughter and Spencer’s ex-wife, Maria Sanutti-Spencer, is already serving a life sentence after being convicted in 2015 for her role in the murder.
