Man Gets Death Penalty for Killing Woman

By  | 

Last May a Warren County jury took less than 45 minutes to convict Phillip L. Brown of beating and stabbing 36-year-old Sherry Bland to death.

Brown was convicted of the same crime three years ago, but was granted a new trial when the state Supreme Court ruled some of the evidence had been wrongly excluded.

Brown was originally sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for 25 years, but this time he got the death penalty.

Phillip Brown is 25 years old.
