MERCERSBURG, Pa. - The 1988 death of Jane Mitchell Souders might forever have been chalked up to suicide.
But partly because of her friend Todd Rexroth, Jane Souders' husband was convicted Monday of shooting her.
Still, Rexroth believes that the maximum 10-year prison sentence awaiting Joseph Leroy Souders for voluntary manslaughter isn't severe enough.
"This really bothers me," said Rexroth, 32, of Newburg, Pa. "She's still heavy on my mind and I did what I had to do."
Rexroth, who had become close friends with Jane Souders while the two were patients of the psychiatric unit at Chambersburg Hospital, told his psychiatrist that he didn't think her death was a suicide.
