Life Sentence For Man Found Guilty Of Murder

A trial filled with emotion from the beginning now has an end.

Jamie Barnett agreed to a life sentence for killing Clay City Police Chief Randy Lacy.

Barnett can still appeal the guilty verdict and be eligible for parole in 20 years.

This came after the prosecution called three Lacy family members who had most of the courtroom in tears.

After a short break the jury was not asked to come back, instead Barnett approached the bench himself and told the judge of his decision.

His attorney says there is good reason for possible appeals.

Barnett will be back in a Powell County Courtroom August 6th, for formal sentencing.
