A Berks County jury acted properly when it ruled that Glenn Lyons should be executed for the May 2008 torture-murder of a woman with whom he was having an affair, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ruled.
The victim, 45-year-old Kathy A. Leibig of Lebanon County, was stabbed 30 times and left to bleed to death in her car.
Investigators said Lyons, 48, told a prison cell mate that he killed Leibig because she wanted to end their affair. The two met in 2007 while working at a candy company.
The Supreme Court issued its ruling upholding the death sentence on Wednesday, more than two years after Berks County Judge Paul M. Yatron imposed it for Lyons’ convictions on charges of first- and third-degree murder. In an opinion by Justice Debra McCloskey Todd, the state’s highest court rejected arguments by Lyons that prosecutors had failed to prove he had killed Leibig.
Lyons argued that Leibig was slain by an unknown man in a yellow hooded sweat shirt who attacked him and knocked him out while he and Liebig were in her car. He claimed he had Leibig’s blood on his own clothing because he regained consciousness to find Leibig already dead and had hugged her gore-soaked body.
Police told a different story.
They claimed Lyons stabbed Leibig with kitchen knives from his Reading apartment, then took her effects and ditched them and his blood-soaked sweatshirt in a trash bin. Lyons then spent several days on the lam doing drugs before being captured in Philadelphia, investigators said.
As for Lyons’ bloody clothes, prosecution experts testified that the blood patterns on the apparel was consistent not with a hug, but with the spatter from a vicious knife attack. The torture issue arose when a pathologist testified that Leibig likely was conscious throughout the brutal assault, which might have lasted as long as 15 minutes.
