Man gets life in prison for killing foster father

Updated: Monday, October 7 2013, 04:47 PM EDT



A Guernsey County man has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering his foster father.

Perry Buco, 22, of Cambridge, killed Robert "Chris" Caples in April 2012 at the home they shared.

Officials said the two men were arguing because Caples wanted Buco to get a job. Investigators said Buco used an 8-pound dumbbell to break Caples' skull. Caples also suffered stab wounds from a knife and puncture wounds from a pitchfork.

Buco then bound Caples' body in a blanket and placed the body in a freezer in the basement of their home.

Buco is not eligible for parole for 30 years because of his aggravated murder conviction.
