A Pennsylvania dentist and big game hunter was sentenced to spend the rest of his life behind bars by a federal judge in Denver for shooting and killing his wife at the end of an African safari and then cashing in on her life insurance.

Lawrence “Larry” P. Rudolph, 68, was convicted of foreign murder by federal jurors in August 2022. The defendant has long-awaited sentencing over his conviction for the 2016 slaying of Bianca Rudolph, his wife of 34 years, who died in the Republic of Zambia.

“This result shows that no matter how much money, prestige, or power you have, you will be held accountable for your crimes,” U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado Cole Finegan said in a press release announcing the defendant’s punishment. “The fact that justice arrived today is no accident. It was part of a dedicated effort by public servants committed to the cause of justice. We are grateful to the attorneys, staff, and investigators who made today’s result possible.”

The defendant reportedly has a net worth in the area of some $15 million due to a successful chain of dental franchises he started in 2006. Prosecutors allege he aimed to balloon that sum with his wife’s insurance proceeds and live in luxury with this then-girlfriend.
