HILLSVILLE — David Richardson will serve 13 years, with four suspended, for the shooting death of a Carroll County man, Judge Brett Geisler ruled during a sentencing hearing in Carroll County Circuit Court on Tuesday.
The jury had recommended nine years for the defendant, who was convicted of first-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and discharging a firearm in an occupied dwelling.
Richardson fired three shots in a May 18, 2010 incident that resulted in the death of Bryon Jordan Wilson.
