Police searched Casper's Honeoye Lake home after getting a tip he took a hunting bow from a range. Casper's attorney, Clark Zimmerman, asked a judge for a hearing to determine if the search was legal. "They didn't go there looking for fireworks," said Zimmerman. "They went in looking for something much larger. So it's my position that the search exceeded the scope of what they were looking for."
Casper was convicted of murdering his wife, Catherine Bly, in 2000. He sent their family minivan off a cliff with Bly sitting in the passengers seat. He got out of prison early on a technicality which outraged Bly's family. The judge released Casper on his own recognisance, but he is still being held in jail on a felony charge. If convicted of violating his parole Casper would have to serve the remaining 4 years of his 15 year sentence.
