The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has affirmed the criminal convictions and life sentences of David Matusiewicz and his sister, Amy Gonzalez, for their roles in stalking and killing Christine Belford in the New Castle County Courthouse in February of 2013.  After killing Ms. Belford and her friend, Laura Mulford in the Courthouse, the Defendants’ father, Thomas Matusiewicz, took his own life following a gun battle with Delaware Capitol Police Officers. Defendants’ mother, Lenore Matusiewicz, was also convicted and sentenced to life in prison for her role in this crime, but died while her appeal was pending.  In oral arguments, attorneys appealed the siblings convictions before the panel in February.
