Sherry Lee Heffernan, a 57-year-old woman from Landenberg, Pennsylvania, has been handed two consecutive life sentences for the heinous 2021 killing of her elderly father and his longtime girlfriend, authorities announced on Friday.
Heffernan was found guilty earlier this year for the murder of 87-year-old John Enders and his live-in girlfriend, 57-year-old Francoise Pitoy, at Enders' beach house in Surf City, New Jersey.
The case, which has gripped the community for over two years, saw Heffernan vehemently deny any involvement, claiming she was being framed. However, a grand jury ultimately convicted her of the stabbing and shooting deaths.
According to prosecutors, Heffernan's motive stemmed from her father's decision to exclude her from his will and prevent her from selling his house, where the gruesome murders took place. On top of that, Enders cut her and an estranged daughter out of his living will the previous month, a friend said in the police account.
In early March, Heffernan was convicted by a jury of her peers as the double murderer based on evidence that her RV was caught on video driving down the Long Beach Island Bridge on the early morning of Sept. 29, 2021. Next, Heffernan traveled on foot toward her father’s home. She carried an orange bag and clothes “too large” for her, and she hopped a backyard fence. Later that day, video captured her as she drove her RV back over the same bridge as before.
Heffernan’s son reportedly told cops in an Oct. 4, 2021, interview that his mother left home the previous week to visit her father. He allegedly described this as a “midnight dash.”
Days later, authorities conducting a welfare check found both victims shot in the mouth and stabbed dozens of times at the home on North 7th Street. Enders was stabbed 51 times and Pitoy 39 times.
Neighbors recalled Enders and Pitoy's 19-year-long relationship as a happy and loving one, further underscoring the shock and devastation caused by their tragic deaths.
The trial lasted almost four weeks, prosecutors said. Jurors convicted Heffernan of two counts each of murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and unlawful possession of a weapon.
Superior Court Judge Kimarie Rahill on Friday ordered Heffernan to serve 63 years and nine months without the possibility of parole for each murder, saying the crime was committed with “extreme depravity.”
“This defendant will spend the rest of her life in prison. This is an appropriate sentence and we are hopeful that this brings some measure of closure to the family and friends of John and Francoise,” Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer said in a statement.
