Ottawa Co. family killer to be punished Wednesday

William Liske in court

An Ottawa County man will learn his fate Wednesday for killing his father, stepmother and stepbrother.

William Liske will be sentenced at 10:30a in the morning. Last month, Liske admitted to the murders as part of a plea deal. And in exchange for that, he will not face the death penalty. The maximum sentence he can receive is life in prison without parole.

Liske's stepbrother found the three bodies in October at the family's rural home in Ottawa County. Official documents released in November say William Liske, Jr., 53, was shot five times in the head. His wife Susan Liske, 46, died from at least two shots to the head and one to the body. Susan's son, Derek Griffin, was beaten to death with a hammer.

We'll let you know what the judge decides Wednesday on WNWO News at 6.
