Man Sentenced in First-Degree Murder Case
James Leo Hamrick was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole and 15 additional years to be served consecutively for the murder of Toni Marie Davis.
In a Lyon County case, a judge sentenced 56-year-old James Leo Hamrick to life in prison with the possibility of parole, and 15 additional years to be served consecutively, after he was found guilty of the first-degree murder of 60-year-old Toni Marie Davis, his brother's wife.
Lewis Hamrick, brother of the defendant and husband of the victim, returned home in Dayton to find his wife, Davis, and his brother missing. Davis was reported missing after she failed to return home, and after three weeks of searching, her body was found.
James Hamrick was later arrested and charged with the murder and destruction of evidence for hiding the body.
