Former LITH resident gets prison in toxin plot
ROCKFORD – A former Lake in the Hills man was sentenced Monday to about seven and a half years in prison after federal authorities said he plotted to kill his wife with puffer fish toxin to collect on a $20 million life insurance policy.
Edward F. Bachner IV, 39, pleaded guilty in August 2011 to charges of possession of a lethal toxin for use as a weapon, wire fraud and filing false tax claims.
His wife, Rebecca Bachner, was in court and supportive of her husband, with U.S. District Judge Frederick Kapala at one point noting, “I think she’d be happy if he went home today.”
