COLUMBUS: A central Ohio man whose insanity defense was rejected by a jury has been sentenced to life in prison for a 2010 road-rage slaying.
Prosecutors say 47-year-old Marvin Clinton shot Kesley Ellis once in the chest after Ellis’ SUV rear-ended his pickup truck in Columbus in December 2010.
He was convicted in May. A second jury then rejected Clinton’s claim that he didn’t understand what he was doing because of a mental illness.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that Clinton won’t be eligible for parole until he is 78. Common Pleas Judge Michael J. Holbrook on Tuesday called the crime “cold and calculated” and said he wants to make sure Clinton never walks the streets again.
