Pierce gets life in prison

A nearly 50-year-old cold case came to a close last Friday when 86-year-old Richard Pierce was given a life sentence for murdering his wife, Carol Jean. Pierce was arrested in 2018 at his home in Cheboygan, Mich., before eventually going to trial for his crimes earlier this year. He was found guilty of first-degree murder and for moving the body on April 28th. Carol Jean went missing approximately 47 years ago when she lived with Pierce in Sturgeon Bay while he was a member of the U.S. Coast Guard. The body has never been found, a point Pierce’s defense team tried to relay to the jury during the trial. Pierce was also given three years in prison for moving the body after he murdered her.
