JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi man has been convicted for the second time in the killing of a woman while she slept in his apartment.
A Hinds County jury on Tuesday found 35-year-old old Charles "Louie" Kuebler guilty of murder. Prosecutors say he shot 28-year-old Tamra Stuckey to death June 30, 2010, in Jackson. Jurors also convicted Kuebler of using a gun in commission of a felony.
Hinds County Circuit Court Judge Winston Kidd sentenced Kuebler to life in prison for murder and gave him a five-year sentence for the gun crime, to run at the same time.
Kuebler was convicted of murder in 2011. The Mississippi Supreme Court in 2016 ordered a new trial, ruling that Kidd should have let Kuebler's defense present a theory that the shooting was accidental.
