Page 3A Reading, math bill Jury: McLinn guilty of murder McLinn Sasko Faces 50 years without parole; sentencing Monday Jurors found Sarah Gonzales Mc- Linn guilty of first- degree murder in the January 2014 killing of Harold “ Hal” Sasko Friday in Douglas County court. The jury deliberated for nearly five hours before determining that McLinn, 20, of Lawrence, was able to form intent when she used a long, black knife to slice the neck of Sasko, 52, of Lawrence, on Jan. 14, 2014. McLinn lived with Sasko at the time of his death and had previously worked for him at Sasko’s CiCi’s Pizza restaurant. In order to find McLinn not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect, jurors had to find that she was “ incapable of possessing the required culpable mental state” to plan and intend to kill Sasko. A determination on a “ Hard 50” sentence — 50 years in jail without the possibility of parole — will wait until Monday. Jurors must decide if there were “ aggravating factors” in the murder that justify the sentence.
