Leoti Man Sentenced To Life For Killing of Ex-Wife

KSCB News - April 17, 2011 2:18 pm

A Leoti Kansas man whose fatal shooting of his ex-wife was caught on tape by 1 of their children has been sentenced to life in prison.

Todd Schumacher will be eligible for parole after 25 years under the sentence he received Wednesday in Wichita County District Court. Schumacher was also sentenced to one year for endangering a child.

The 45-year-old Leoti (lee-OH’-tih) man was convicted in January of first-degree murder for killing Ann Schumacher in March 2010. The pair had three children and were fighting over custody.

A 15-year-old daughter videotaped the argument that led up to the fatal shooting. The camera was pointed away from the adults, but the audio – of a gunshot followed by a loud thud – was played for the jury at Schumacher’s trial.
