SPENCER CO., Ind. (WFIE) - A Spencer County man convicted last month of murder has been sentenced on Tuesday to 65 years in prison.
A jury found 52-year old Alan Bennett guilty of shooting 64-year old Linda Bowman after deliberating for two hours.
He was ordered to par $27,699.39 in restitution. That’s $5,000 in fines and the rest in court costs.
Indiana State Police say Bennett shot Bowman during a domestic dispute at their Grandview home before shooting himself.
Bowman died from that gunshot wound, while Bennett spent time in the hospital before being taken to jail.
