Fl. Man Sentenced For Ky. Murder

A man will spend 45 years in prison for murdering a Rowan County man.

Last month, a jury found James Conn guilty of shooting Timmy Riggs to death.

Police say Conn thought Riggs was responsible for his son's death, who overdosed on drugs.

Conn's wife, Katherine, pleaded guilty to complicity to murder. The Conns are from Florida.

    I don't know the details of this case! I tend to trust the authorities in these matters. Nothing justifies murder except to defend your life or anothers life from imminent danger. If the victim sold drugs to their son or provided drugs to him you could rationally put partial blame on the victim but that is a matter for the courts and not for anyone to take upon themselves in a vigilanti type of revenge murder. But again who knows what goes through peoples mind! Grief struck people some times do irrational things but this seems to go beyond that. Good Day!

    God bless the Rigg's family. I knew Timmy and grew up playing ball with him. Thanks for some justice and closure for the family.
