The murders of Holly Williams and William Lanway are covered extensively in ABC’s ’20/20: Sealed With a Kill,’ with the show delving into the details of just how it all came to be. The case started with an affair between Williams and Erik Maund, who became afraid that his affair would be exposed and hired men to murder the two on March 12, 2020. Given Maund’s extensive involvement in the case, the world has become invested in learning what they can about the man. Specifically, people are eager to know what his family has been up to these days.
Sheri Maund Prefers a Private Lifestyle
Given that the murders of Holly Williams and William Lanway started because of Erik Maund’s fear of his extramarital affair being discovered, people have been especially eager to learn more about his wife, Sheri Maund, who previously went by the name Sheri Blaschke. Daughter to Sylvan Blaschke, she married Erik on February 20, 1999. During the wedding, her sister, Stephanie Blascke, was actually the maid of honor, an event attended by several close members of the family.
Not long after the deaths of Willimas and Lanway, Erik seemingly tried to end his marriage with Sheri. As per a document submitted on May 8, 2020, he filed for a divorce in Texas’ Travis County court. However, the procedure was dismissed as a nonsuit, primarily due to Erik’s involvement in the murder trial of Williams and Lanway, for which he arrested in December 2021. Erik was found guilty of conspiracy of murder-for-hire on November 17, 2023.
Though he has not been sentenced for his crimes, Erik does face a mandatory life sentence in federal prison. Sheri herself has not shared much about her opinion regarding the whole case, even after Erik’s conviction. However, the fact that this all started due to an extramarital affair certainly would not have made Sheri happy. As far as her knowledge regarding her husband’s actions is concerned, it seems like Sheri was unaware of the ongoing affair before the case became such a public deal. For the most part, she prefers to lead a private life and has not shared much with the public when it comes to details regarding her personal life. While it has been reported that she and Erik share a son named Doug Maund, not much is known about him as well.
