Fourth man connected to Oklahoma kidnapping is sentenced
(Information from: Tulsa World, http://www.tulsaworld.com)
TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The last of four men has been sentenced to prison nearly two years after a Talala man found his son’s decomposed body along the Indian Nation Turnpike.
The Tulsa World reports that 44-year-old James Jones was found guilty Thursday of felony murder for the June 21, 2015, death of 27-year-old Chazz Holly. Jones was sentenced to life in prison.
According to trial testimony, Holly, who had cerebral palsy and delayed cognitive reasoning, was kidnapped and put inside the covered bed of his father’s pickup. He was eventually placed on the floorboard of the backseat where he died.
Co-defendants Vernon Smith, William Garrett and Sidney Randall were previously convicted.
Garett and Randall were sentenced to 20 years in prison, and Smith was sentenced to life in prison.
