Va. man who killed Mormon missionary gets 38 years
A Virginia man has been sentenced to prison for killing one Mormon missionary and wounding a second in a January 2006 attack in the southeast Virginia city of Chesapeake.
Twenty-three-year-old James Boughton Jr. was given a 38-year, six-month term Monday in Chesapeake Circuit Court.
In December 2008, jurors convicted Boughton in the shooting death of Morgan W. Young of Bountiful, Utah. Boughton also was convicted of wounding Joshua Heidbrink of Greeley, Colo.
The missionaries were shot while knocking on doors.
Besides first-degree murder, Boughton was convicted of malicious wounding, attempted malicious wounding and three firearms counts.
