The Ontario County woman convicted of killing, dismembering and burning her husband’s body in 2012 had a misdemeanor conviction of endangering the welfare of a child recently reversed by the 4th Appellate Division of the State Supreme Court.
Rose Chase was sentenced in 2014 to more than 24 years to life in prison for killing Adam Chase in the home they shared on Mott Road in the town of Stanley. Adam Chase’s body was dismembered, his remains burned and his bones scattered on Rose Chase’s mom’s property in Yates County. His remains were found 6 months after he was reported missing.
Rose Chase was convicted of endangering the welfare of a child for having her 4-year-old ride in the car she was using to transport her husband’s remains with. The Appellate Court ruled there was not legally sufficient evidence to support the charge.
Chase will not be eligible for parole until 2036.
