OSSINING, NY (WENY) - Thomas Clayton will serve out his life sentence in the Sing Sing Correctional Facility.

Clayton will serve life without the possibility of parole after being convicted of 1st and 2nd degree murder. In February, a Steuben County jury found Clayton guilty of hiring Michael Beard to kill his wife Kelley.
