Murder Sentence

A second person is sentenced to prison for the murder of a Western student.

Twenty-six-year-old Charles Morse of Louisville, pleaded guilty to murder by complicity, and burglary.

He will serve 25 years in prison, for the death of 21-year-old James Corey Webster, who was found shot to death at his Willow Creek Apartment home in 2003.

George Webster, Corey's father said, "I don't believe there's anything you could do to make me satisfied. I mean, he could get the electric chair and it wouldn't be enough, you know, because my son would still be dead."

Morse made a plea bargain to testify against Gary Gamble, who pleaded guilty to the murder last year, and was sentenced to 70 years in prison.

Morse will be eligible for parole in 20 years.

Morse and Gamble admitted they were trying to burglarize Webster's home when Gamble shot Webster.
