ANDERSON COUNTY, Ky.-(WKYT) A judge sentenced an Anderson County man who pleaded guilty to killing his landlord to 30 years in prison.

In April, Terrance Cram admitted he killed Tena McNeely back in 2011.

Wednesday afternoon he was back inside an Anderson County courtroom to find out how long he will have to serve in prison.

Before the judge read Cram's sentence, McNeely's sister spoke to the court. She called Cram an "evil man."

"Hopefully, we'll be able to heal from all this and not have to take that band-aid off anymore, we can actually, finally heal," said Katrina McNeely.

Cram received 25 years on the murder charge. He also pleaded guilty to tampering with physical evidence and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Cram will serve five years each for those charges to run concurrent.

He will be eligible for parole after 25 years.
