105-Year Prison Sentence Upheld

The Indi­ana state Court of Appeals has upheld a 105-year prison sen­tence for a north­east Indi­ana man con­victed of fatally shoot­ing another man and shoot­ing at a sheriff’s deputy dur­ing a chase.

Accord­ing to the Her­ald Repub­li­can, 26-year-old Zao Garth Bur­rell of Angola appealed his sen­tence, argu­ing he didn’t deserve the max­i­mum sen­tence because there was no lying in wait, mul­ti­ple gun shots, or chil­dren nearby, muti­la­tion of the body or other such despi­ca­ble acts accord­ing to his appeal.

Bur­rell also argued over the weight of the metham­phet­a­mine sold to 40-year-old Brent Dom­broski which led to the shoot­ing in 2012.

In uphold­ing the sen­tence, the court said Bur­rell showed con­tempt for the law by shoot­ing at a Steuben County deputy.
