Anthony “Rocco” Franklin has been sentenced to life in prison plus an additional 11 to 45 years. Franklin was found guilty in October for killing his former son-in-law Frank Spencer. Spencer was shot twice outside his home in Hemlock Township in July of 2012. Franklin spoke out at his sentencing this morning in Columbia County Court calling the verdict ridiculous and the biggest farce he's ever seen.  Franklin asked the judge for a new trial with a change in venue. The judge denied this request.  Franklin's daughter and Spencer's ex-wife, Maria Sanutti-Spencer, was was also convicted in 2015 in connection with the murder. Franklin plans to appeal.
