A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to death for killing his sister and
A Hernando County judge followed a jury's recommendation Tuesday in sentencing
57-year-old John Kalisz. He was convicted in January of two counts of
1st-degree murder, 2 counts of attempted murder and 1 count of armed burglary.
Authorities say Kalisz killed his sister, Kathryn Donovan, and her office
manager, Deborah Tillotson, and wounded 2 others at a Brooksville home in
January 2010. He killed Dixie County sheriff's Capt. Chad Reed in a shootout
later the same day in Cross City.
Kalisz received a life sentence as part of a deal with prosecutors last year
after pleading guilty to killing the deputy.
