    A 25–60-year sentence awaits Richard Crafts for killing his wife, Helle, three years ago, although lawyers for the former pilot say they will appeal the conviction because of widespread publicity generated by the sensational case. Mr Crafts, 51, was found guilty of murder Tuesday in Norwalk Superior Court. The prosecution alleged he killed his flight attendant wife, cut the body into pieces with a chainsaw and ran some of the body parts through a woodchipper to destroy the evidence.
