MADISONVILLE-After nearly two years in
jail on a murder charge and a two-day trial after several starts and
stops, Ralph Hunt could be out of jail in about a year.
Hunt had been charged with first-degree
murder in the 2011 killing of Gerald Strickland, but after listening
to two days of testimony, a jury found him guilty of two counts of
voluntary manslaughter and theft under $500.
On Monday Hunt was sentenced to a total
of 17 years, but with time served, the sentences running concurrently
and Hunt needing to only serve 35 percent of his sentence before he
is eligible for parole, he could be out in about a years time.
