Want to Live in the 'Amityville Horror' House? Now's Your Chance...
The home that inspired "The Amityville Horror" book and movies is back on the market.
In 1974, Ronald DeFeo, 23, killed his parents and four siblings at the Long Island, New York, property.
DeFeo pleaded insanity at the trial, claiming voices in the house made him commit the murders. He was found guilty on all six counts of second-degree murder and is currently serving his sentence at Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg, N.Y.
The first family who lived in the home after the murders, the Lutz family, said they had paranormal experiences, moving out of the "possessed" house after just 28 days.
Audiotapes of the Lutzs describing their experiences were the basis of Jay Anson's book "The Amityville Horror: A True Story" and the subsequent films.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom home, which was built in 1927, is listed at $850,000. It boasts a large boat house, two-car garage and a boat slip.
According to reports, Caroline D’Antonio, who bought the house in 2010, is selling it because her husband died last year and she wants to downsize.
