In DeKalb County, Circuit Court Judge Kirk Carpenter has denied a petition from a convicted murderer who had been seeking a modification of his 50 year prison sentence. Judge Carpenter issued his ruling late last week in the case of Thomas Sexton, who pleaded guilty in 1996 to murdering a co-worker… George Harmes of Angola at the Auburn Dana plant.
