Sentencing In Slaying Of Sunbury Businessman

May 31, 2013

Two Louisiana prison inmates were sentenced to life behind bars yesterday for the kidnapping and slaying of a Sunbury businessman abducted from a Mississippi hotel after they escaped in 2011.

The family of a Sunbury businessman kidnapped in Mississippi is suing Louisiana State Police and the state corrections department because the alleged gunmen were trustees who escaped last year from a state police compound.
