A Taylor County man has been ordered to spend the rest of his life behind bars for a murder he committed last year.

Rocky T. Ashby, 37, was sentenced to life in prison in Taylor County Circuit Court Tuesday for the murder of 35-year-old Tara Simpson Lamer in July 2016.

However, Ashby will be able to appear before a parole board after serving 20 years of his sentence.

Ashby faced charges of murder-domestic violence, second-degree burglary, and first-degree wanton endangerment from the incident that occurred on July 16, 2016.
