On April 9, 2014, Terry Saxton appeared for a sentencing hearing in the Catoosa County Courthouse before Kristina C. Graham, the Superior Court Judge who presided over the September, 2013, jury trial in which he was convicted of Voluntary Manslaughter. Family members of the victim, Vicki LaCombe, testified at the hearing about the impact the crime had upon them. The Defendant made a brief statement and denied any responsibility. Judge Graham noted the Defendant’s failure to take responsibility for his crime and recounted that the trial testimony established that the killing was of a particularly brutal and savage nature. The judge sentenced the Defendant to serve twenty years in prison for the offense. The Defendant was represented by Dan Ripper and the State was represented by District Attorney Herbert E. (Buzz) Franklin.
