Ex-Sussman Landscaper To Be Sentenced In Daughter's Death

Aug 16 2011 | 7:54am ET

The landscaper who killed his daughter on the estate of his former employer, Paloma Partners founder S. Donald Sussman, will be sentenced tomorrow.

Adam Dobrzanski, 57, will be sentenced to 40 years in prison under his plea agreement with prosecutors. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and home invasion in May.

Dobrzanski admitted he killed his 20-year-old daughter, Amanda, a University of Rhode Island student, on Dec. 30, 2009. The live-in landscaper, who has a history of mental health issues, was apparently distraught about his wife's filing for divorce. His wife served as the Sussmans' live-in cook.

After slitting his daughter's throat, Dobrzanski attempted to kill himself, stabbing himself repeatedly and pouring gasoline on his body. When police arrived, he attempted to jump out of a window of the servant's quarters at Sussman's Greenwich estate
