A Morgan County man charged in a murder is sentenced Tuesday in Morgan County Common Pleas Court. Prosecutor Mark Howdyshell says that 40-year-old Timmy Stevens received 36 years in prison for the death of John Davis III in June of 2012. Sheriff Tom Jenkins says witnesses said that Stevens and Davis were arguing inside a home at 430 North Riverview Road when Stevens shot Davis in the head. When deputies arrived both men were gone. Witnesses say they got into a rental car and fled the area. The car was later found in Stockport. Davis’ body was found near Bald Eagle Road in Windsor Township.
