On Monday, Johnson was sentenced to 58.5 years to life in prison for the murder of the Long Island father of three.

"The Kutz family has been devasted in a way that we cannot comprehend nor change, but we hope this sentence will in some small way provide the family with the ability to move forward," Weishaupt said. “Due to the egregious facts of this case, as well as the immeasurable loss and trauma inflicted on the victims, my office recommended the maximum penalty allowable under the law."
