LEX 18 News has learned that the man convicted in a high-profile murder case has had his sentence reduced.
Toby Lasure's sentence has been reduced from 99 years to 30 years in prison. A Fayette County Circuit judge says that the Kentucky Supreme Court overturned Lasure's conviction and sentence based on errors made in the case.
LEX 18 has been told that Lasure has now entered a guilty plea to several charges, and, based on the Commonwealth's recommendation, has now been sentenced to 30 years for murder with credit for time already served on those other charges. He is eligible for parole in twenty years.
Jurors found Lasure guilty of killing his ex-boyfriend, Christopher Tolliver at Lexington Green, then fleeing and evading police back in 2009.
