A Huntingdon County man who admitted to murdering his daughter-in-law more than a decade ago faced the Judge and learned his fate on Thursday morning.  In December, Kenneth Leighty pleaded guilty in court to killing Sherry Leighty, the mother of his three grandchildren.  On Thursday, he was sentenced to seven to fourteen years in prison.  This is a deal Prosecutors say they were forced to make.  Sherry Leighty's family did not know what happened to her for fourteen years.  They had hoped she was safe but they learned that she was killed by her father-in-law, Kenneth Leighty.  He was charged last May after leading investigators to the body that he buried on the family property in Warriors Mark Township.
