Ky man gets 2 years in jail for grave theft

PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky man has been sentenced to two years in jail for stealing from a grave.

Floyd County Circuit Judge John David Caudill also scolded Randall Vickers for the theft, telling him there's "no excuse for this."

Vickers pleaded guilty last month to stealing from the grave of 19-year-old Anthony Osborne in Floyd County. He was sentenced Tuesday.

Vickers was taken back to the Floyd County Jail to finish out his sentence.
