CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Carroll County man will spend decades in prison for killing Richard Houchin.
James Haas, 59, was sentenced to 55 years Monday afternoon. Earlier this month a jury found him guilty of murder.
Richard Houchin's body was discovered on August 10th in Deer Creek in northeastern Carroll County.
Investigators said he died from head trauma. According to prosecutors, Haas lived with Houchin's ex-wife.
She decided to go back to Houchin which had upset Haas.
