ZANESVILLE, OHIO: A 34-year-old Ohio man who unsuccessfully represented himself during his murder trial last month has been sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.

Muskingum County Common Pleas Judge Mark Fleegle sentenced 34-year-old Timothy Daniel on Monday in the shooting death of 61-year-old Charles Hooper at a Zanesville Burger King restaurant last October. Hooper was killed after he intervened in an argument between Daniel and Daniel’s then-girlfriend.

Daniel insisted on representing himself at trial last month, and was found guilty by a jury after his star witness, another ex-girlfriend, turned on him to save herself.

Hours before testifying, Heidi McGilton was arrested on charges of selling heroin. In exchange for prosecutors dropping those charges, McGilton revealed Daniel’s plan to buy false testimony from witnesses.

Daniel said he will appeal.
