A big murder trial has been going on at the Lee County Courthouse in Jonesville and the jury has made their recommendations.
Timothy Raymond Carter, 47 was accused of fatal shooting of his wife Amy Carter in April 2011.
On Tuesday, April 28, the jury found Carter guilty of second degree murder in the death of Amy Carter with a sentencing of 20 years for the murder and 3 years for the use of a firearm.
The care arose when in 2013 Lee County Sheriff Gary Parsons became suspicious of the self inflicted gunshot report almost immediately upon responding to the scene, due to the placement of evidence and the amount of time that had passed between the shooting and the incident being reported
The initial charges against Carter was for first degree murder and commission of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
The final sentencing trial will be on August 27, 2015
