The Dateline episode ‘The House in the Woods’ investigates the murder of 35-year-old Kelley Clayton, wife of former hockey player Tom Clayton (Elmira Jackals), and mother of two young children. Kelley Clayton was bludgeoned to death with the broken handle of a maul, in her Elmira, New York home in September 2015. A former employee of her husband’s, Michael Beard, was found guilty of her murder. Beard’s lawyer said Tom Clayton offered his client $10,000 to kill Kelley. In February 2017, Tom Clayton was found guilty of first- and second-degree murder charges in connection to the death of his wife.
