While Henthorn’s trial for Toni’s 2012 murder has ended in a conviction, Henthorn has yet to be tried for the 1995 death of his first wife, Sarah Lynn Henthorn. Deputies are apparently looking into the case, according to a spokeswoman for the Douglas Couty Sheriff’s Department. Sarah Lynn was crushed to death by a car while trying to change a tired. Sarah Lynn, like Toni, died near the couple’s 12th wedding anniversary.

Craig Truman, Henthorn’s attorney, has previously stated that he will appeal the conviction.
