Racine man sentenced to life in prison for 2010 murder

RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing a retired teacher who was giving out quarters to needy people near a Laundromat.

A judge refused Thursday to set a possible supervised release date for 68-year-old Wilbert Thomas.

He was convicted in June for the beating and strangling of 67-year-old Sandra Teichow in October of 2010. Thomas pleaded insanity.

He spent time in a mental institution getting treatment after he was first deemed incompetent to stand trial.

After that, Circuit Judge Tim Boyle threw out the insanity plea. He said Thomas had a mental condition at the time of the slaying, but he still knew right from wrong.

Teichow was beaten and strangled on a sidewalk in Racine, and her body was later taken to a wooded area.

Police identified Thomas from photos the victim managed to take with a digital camera while being attacked.

Thursday, Thomas sat in a wheelchair as he told Judge Boyle he'd appeal his sentence and conviction.
