MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for his role in a fatal home intrusion.
The Paducah Sun reported that Edwin Russell of Elkton said nothing Monday as Graves Circuit Judge Tim Stark handed down the sentence.
Russell was convicted of six charges, including complicity to murder, stemming from a home invasion on Feb. 16, 2012 that resulted in Richard Jett dying and left his wife, Sharon Jett, with permanent injuries.
Two other men, James Kirby and Richard Phipps, pleaded guilty for their roles and testified against Russell. Phipps is serving life in prison. Kirby received a 30-year prison sentence.
