Jurors have recommended that a southern Indiana man spend life in prison without the possibility of parole after convicting him of killing two family members and wounding another during a shooting rampage.
The Harrison Superior Court jury made its sentencing decision yesterday, a day after convicting 25-year-old Hobert Pittman on charges that included two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.
Pittman of Corydon and 22-year-old John Naylor of Frankton were both charged with killing Pittman's father, Hobert, in 2004. The shooting occurred after the 59-year-old Pittman returned from a trip to his mother-in-law's home in Marengo and a Corydon lumber store.
His body was found covered with a tarp outside his home in the Ohio River town of Mauckport, about 20 miles southwest of Louisville.
