POINT PLACE, OH (Toledo News Now) - Almost an entire year has passed since Point Place father Tom Przybysz was stabbed to death outside of his home. The family talked exclusively to WTOL after seeing the men responsible for his murder brought to justice.

Monday, Judge Ruth Ann Franks handed down the maximum sentence to John Haugh, the man who took Tom's life, stabbing him 15 times.

“The court imposes the following sentence, you are committed to the department of rehabilitation and corrections for life in prison without parole,” said Judge Franks.

It was a comforting message of justice to the family who sat in the courtroom listening to the gruesome details of Tom's death.

“Relieved, kind of happy there will be peace, glad that there is justice,” said Tom's sister Christi Kidd.

The other two men involved in Tom's murder were also sentenced. Scott Warnka got 11 years and Roy Cerveny was sentenced to three.

Judge Franks held up a picture of Tom and his 8-year-old daughter during sentencing to remind the men that they were responsible for taking this father away from his daughter.

“It's a day-by-day process with her really. One day could be different from the other, some days she's ok, some days she's not,” said Christi.

After John Haugh was sentenced his attorneys did make it known that he plans to appeal the conviction and sentence.
