Early on Friday afternoon, and after a four-day trial, Dwight D. "Whitey" Wisdom was found guilty of the Dec. 4, 2011, murder of Eric Jones.

However, after a few hours of deliberation, the jury couldn't decide on a sentence, so 56th Circuit C.A. Woodall III rendered a sentence of 25 years. According to statute, Wisdom will be eligible for parole in 20 years. He will be formally sentenced at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8.

Wisdom's defense attorney Keith Virgin said they will appeal the verdict. He had also filed a motion for a mistrial after the jury couldn't decide on a verdict, but Woodall denied that motion.
