Bucks County District Attorney Diane E. Gibbons said yesterday that she would seek the death penalty for a Lower Makefield man accused of stabbing his wife to death in July.
Evidence shows that Joseph Sparacio, 47, inflicted "pain and injury beyond what was necessary to kill" Valerie Sparacio, his wife of 20 years, Gibbons said. Police found the wife's body and two serrated knives in the bedroom of the couple's home on Quincy Drive on July 12. Bloodstained men's pajamas were in a clothes hamper. Sparacio had locked himself in the garage with his car running, police said.
