BERKELEY COUNTY, W.Va. - A Hancock man will be spending the rest of his life behind bars in connection to the May 2011 robbery and beating death of a Falling Waters woman. 

Court officials with Berkeley County Circuit Court say on Monday, January 13, 2014 Joshua Stitley, 34, of Hancock, was sentenced to life with mercy on felony murder, 60 years for robbery in the first-degree, three to 15 years in attempted murder in the first-degree and two to 10 years in malicious assault.

Prosecutors argued that on May 26, 2011 Stitley and Roy Lee Wisotzkey, 35, of Hagerstown, Md., beat Vickie Clem and her husband, Jack Clem, with a baseball bat and stabbed them in the night-time robbery at their Falling Waters, W.Va., home. Clem’s husband survived the attack after being stabbed in the groin.

On November 4, 2013 Wisotzkey was sentenced in Washington County Circuit Court to life in prison with mercy, meaning he's eligible for parole after serving 27.5 years of his sentence. He was also sentenced one to five years for conspiracy, one to 15 years on burglary charges and 50 years in prison on robbery charges. 

Stitley's currently being held at the Eastern Regional Jail.
