A man convicted of killing his wife now knows the amount he owes the US Coast Guard.
An Erie County jury found Christopher Leclair guilty of first-degree murder for the death of his wife.
Investigators say Leclair lied to the Coast Guard when he said his wife Karen Leclair fell overboard into Lake Erie a day after he tossed her body into the water. That distress call led to a massive 30-hour search.
Today, the defense and prosecution agreed Leclair would owe more than $424,000 in restitution to the US Coast Guard. The amount does not include personnel expenses.
