50 to Life for Ed Mero Following Double Murder Conviction

A former Albany water department employee who was convicted of two murders is headed to prison for a long time.  

Edward Mero has been sentenced to 50 years to life in prison for the deaths of Megan Cunningham in 2013 and Shelby Countermine, whose body was found in 2014 in a shallow grave near Coeymans.  

Mero was accused of setting a fire to cover up Cunningham's death, and digging a shallow grave near water department property to hide Countermine's body.
