Jewish Stockbroker Who Strangled Wife In 2009 Gets 25 Years To Life

A man who strangled his estranged wife before she could cut him out of her multi-million dollar will was sentenced Wednesday.
Roderick Covlin, 46, was sentenced to 25 years-to-life after the victim’s loved ones delivered very emotional impact statements in court.
He murdered Shele Covlin and then tried to make it look like she drowned in the bathtub.
Their 9-year-old daughter found her body back in 2009.
Roderick Covlin was arrested and charged with murder, two months before he was set to inherit her multi-million dollar estate.
The two were embroiled in a bitter divorce and custody battle over their children. Police initially thought her death an accident. For religious reasons her Orthodox Jewish family objected to an autopsy. But as suspicions mounted her body was exhumed and the medical examiner determined she’d been strangled.

Shele Covlin, 47, was a money manager at UBS, part of a finance family in which she worked alongside her brother and father. Her husband, known as Rod, had been a trader and was a noted figure in the backgammon world, having helped found the U.S. Backgammon Federation.
 His girlfriend stated that he also had plans to kill his own parents to inherit them. He also hacked his daughter's email account and wrote an email that gave the impression that his daughter admitted to killing her mother. This slime wanted to frame his own daughter for the murder he committed. This black-belt who choked his wife to death cried when he heard the verdict.
