S. Indiana man gets 133 years in fatal shootings of 2 men
SHOALS, Ind. (AP) — A southern Indiana man has been sentenced to 133 years prison for his convictions in the fatal shootings of two men.
Thirty-six-year-old Nathan K. Baker was convicted in June in the killings of 82-year-old Alan Sims and 52-year-old Tom Tharp. The men, both from Shoals, were found dead in August 2015 on property Sims owned in the Martin County village of Dover Hill.
The (Jasper) Herald reports that Baker, who’s from the Shoals area, plans to appeal.
The bodies of Sims and Tharp were found by police officers searching for Tharp, who had been reported missing by relatives.
Investigators learned that Baker had previously lived on Sims’ property and that he had been asked to leave but had returned multiple times in the days before the killings.
