Local man sentenced in death
A Choudrant man has been sentenced to 40 years at hard labor in the death of his wife.
Third Judicial District Judge Cynthia Woodard handed down the sentence to Samuel Robert Davis last week.
According to court minutes at the Lincoln Parish Courthouse, representatives of the victim’s family were present and given an opportunity to make a statement, but declined to do so.
The sentence was a plea and was recommended to the court by the District Attorney’s office after consultation with representatives from the victim’s family.
