A Lima man was sentenced to a total of 14 years in prison on Monday- for shooting and killing his girlfriend last October.
In Judge Jeffrey Reed's Courtroom- 48 year-old Timothy Brown received his sentence- after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter with a firearms specification.
He apologized to the family of Valeda Thomas.
The crime was apparently the result of Brown and Thomas getting into an argument- while both were inebriated.
Brown will get credit for time already served- which is 243 days.
