A judge has sentenced a 16-year-old boy who pleaded guilty to killing his guardians to 20 years in prison.
The Glasgow Daily Times reports that Christopher Endicott received the sentence during a hearing Tuesday in Metcalfe County.
He pleaded guilty in October in the 2011 slayings of his legal guardians, Gary and Barbara Holloway. The couple was found fatally shot in their Edmonton home. He also entered guilty pleas to robbery, tampering with evidence and fleeing from police.
The founder of USA Harvest is due in court later this month to answer to charges of stealing money from the charity for personal gain. Stan Curtis of Louisville faces charges of mail fraud, money laundering and filing false income tax returns.
It's cases like this that angers Tammy Delaney who is with Elizabethtown-based Feeding America: Kentucky's Heartland.
"We're in the business to keep our name clean and help people and do the right thing with our funds," remarks Delaney. "When that sort of thing happens, it can cause confusion and it can cause people to want to hang on to their dollars versus giving it sometimes. That's just hard to overcome for non-profits in general."
