Placeholder Image
A local man has been handed a 15-year prison sentence more than four years after shooting his roommate in the face and disposing of his body in a cistern. Timmie Lee Bain had his first-degree murder charge reduced to voluntary manslaughter on Wednesday and was handed a 15-year sentence as a Range Three offender. District Attorney General Lisa Zavogiannis said that means he will serve 45 percent of his sentence before he’s eligible for parole.
