Timothy Jacoby More News
Pennsylvania Corrections Secretary John Wetzel has signed a notice of execution for Timothy Jacoby, a man who fatally shot his friend’s ex-wife when he burglarized her home in York County.
Wetzel signed the notice on Monday, which set the date of the execution for March 8, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. But it’s unlikely that will happen.
In an interview, Jeff Marshall, Jacoby’s attorney, said he’s going to file a motion to stay the execution. He said his client has filed a post-conviction relief act petition — and, under the law, the death penalty can’t be carried out while that or any resulting appeals are pending.
Gov. Tom Wolf has also placed a moratorium on executions, describing the system for capital punishment as “riddled with flaws, making it error prone, expensive, and anything but infallible.” In Pennsylvania, no one has been put to death since 1999.
In 2014, Jacoby, 45, of West Manchester Township, was found guilty of first-degree murder and related offenses and sentenced to death. He killed Monica Schmeyer, 55, of West Manheim Township, on March 31, 2010.
Jacoby was a member of an informal group that met at a Hooters on Route 30 called the Orange Shorts Society. It was named after the color of the shorts that the waitresses wore at the restaurant.
Schmeyer’s ex-husband, Jon, was part of the group. He talked about his divorce and noted that he paid her $1,700 in alimony each month in cash. She had a habit of keeping money in white envelopes throughout her home
On the day of the murder, Jacoby didn’t show up for a meeting of the Orange Shorts Society. Law enforcement conducted a years-long investigation and charged him in the killing.
Jacoby is being held at the State Correctional Institution at Greene.
