No new trial in Calhoun murder case


A Lebanon man convicted earlier this month in a murder case from last year will not be retried.
At a sentencing hearing on Tuesday, Taylor County Circuit Judge Todd Spalding denied a motion to retry William Calhoun, 25, after he was convicted in a jury trial earlier this month.

Calhoun was sentenced to 20 years for wanton murder, 10 years for first-degree assault and one year each for two of the three wanton endangerment charges, all to run concurrently.

“This is tragic for all of us,” Spalding said.
