Pain, Heartbreak Of Newlyweds\' Double Murder Shared In Court 37 Years Later As Killer Awaits New Sentence

Matthew Hardeman wanted the judge to know he’s still suffering. He was three years old in 1981 when his dad John and stepmom Gail were shot and killed at a southwestern Palm Beach County hunting area.

That’s 37 years of missing his father at birthdays, school functions, and every other milestone along the way. This is what convicted murderer Cleo LeCroy stole from him, and that’s why he wants LeCroy to be denied a chance of leaving prison.

“I’ve been serving a life sentence,” Hardeman, who lives in St. Augustine and works as a training manager for Boeing, testified through his tears at a hearing this week. “This is not something that can heal or go away.”
