Baker sentencing delayed

Sentencing for a man found guilty of murder has been delayed until Monday.

Patrick Baker was found guilty on November 3 in the 2014 murder of Donald Mills. His formal sentencing was scheduled for Friday, December 1, but has been rescheduled for Monday, December 4 at 2 p.m.

The jury’s recommended sentence for each charge were five years for reckless homicide, 12 years for first degree robbery, one year for impersonating a police officer and one year for tampering with physical evidence.

A judge will decide Baker’s fate on Monday. See next week’s issue of The Mountain Advocate for more details in this case.
