Tiffin man sentenced to life in prison for Carey killings

Richard L. Clark Jr. will spend the rest of his life in prison for fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend and another man inside a Carey clubhouse.

Clark, 65, of rural Tiffin,  was sentenced this morning on two counts of aggravated murder in Wyandot County Common Pleas Court.

“Your honor, this was not a crime of passion; it was a crime of possession,” said Wyandot County Prosecutor Jonathan Miller.

Clark admitted killing Roger Fredritz, 49, of rural Carey, and Cynthia Hawkinberry, 49, of rural Tiffin, on Nov. 1 inside the Carey Conservation and Sportsman’s Association clubhouse.
