Man Sentenced To 20 Years In Prison

An Eastern Kentucky man faces 20 years in prison.

Police say Mark Marshall Whitaker is responsible for the April 2006 shooting death of Charles Maiden in the Dayhoit community of Harlan County. The 46 year old Whitaker accepted a plea deal last month and pleaded guilty to an amended charge of manslaughter.

Whitaker was sentenced Thursday to 20 years behind bars.
