HUDSON–Warren Powell appeared unaffected by the sentence of 25 years-to-life in state prison imposed on him in Columbia County Court June 16 for the brutal murder of his wife and unborn child.
Mr. Powell, now 38, was convicted April 17 of second degree murder in the October 1, 1994 slaying of his wife, Mary Ann (Tasick) Powell, then 21. She was six-months pregnant at the time of her death.
The couple lived in Halfmoon, Saratoga County, at the time of the murder. Her decomposed body was discovered in the Hudson River May 25, 1996 by campers hiking near Gay’s point in Stockport. A thick rope was wound through her mouth and around her neck and she was stuffed in a hockey bag weighed down with rocks.
