Man Convicted Of Killing Clay County Sheriff Sentenced

A judge sentenced a man convicted of killing a Clay County sheriff more than 40 years ago to life in prison Monday.

A jury convicted Oran Brumley of shooting Sheriff Matt Sizemore five times with a high-powered rifle as he was serving warrants in the Ephram Creek area on June 1, 1969.

Prosecutors say Brumley admitted killing Sizemore, but retracted the confession during his trial last month. It took the jury just two hours to reach its verdict.

Brumley was already serving time in an Ohio prison for a 2004 knife attack that killed an 80-year-old man.
