Ex-Cop Who Aided Abduction of Man Found Dead Gets Prison

A former Dedham, Massachusetts police officer was sentenced Thursday to six to nine years in state prison in connection with the 2014 New Year’s Day killing of an Avon man. Michael Schoener, 45, was found guilty earlier this week of accessory before the fact to the kidnapping of 37-year-old James Robertson, who was kidnapped from his home in 2014 and found murdered in the woods in Upton about two years later.
