Gibson Co. man sentenced for killing ex-girlfriend's father

GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) - Convicted killer Austin Blaize was sentenced Thursday to life without parole.

A judge refused Blaize's appeal to reverse his conviction for the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend's father.

In August, a jury found Blaize guilty in the January 2013 murder of Terry Monier.

Ivan Arnaez is the Defense Attorney in this case and He says he will appeal this sentencing.

He believes his client, Austin Blaize, should have been sentenced to something more like 20 years rather than life without parole"

Arnaez says the punishment for Blaize did not fit his crime.
