Clayton Request Denied; Will Be Sentenced Monday

Sentencing will go on as scheduled Monday for the former Elmira Jackals hockey player convicted for his role in the murder of his wife in 2015. 

Thomas Clayton's appeal for Judge Peter Bradstreet to set the jury's verdict aside was denied Thursday.  His attorney argued the testimony of one prosecution witness was quote, fraudulent and made up. Following a 7 week trial earlier this year, Clayton was found guilty of first-and-second degree murder. 


He faces life in prison without the possibility of parole when sentenced in Steuben County Court Monday.
