CATTLETSBURG, Ky. (AP) -- A northeastern Kentucky man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison on his conviction for a car bombing that targeted his wife in an Ashland parking garage.
The Independent reports that Judge George W. Davis III handed down the sentence on Friday to 52-year-old Thomas K. Biederman of Russell. The sentence was recommended by the jury that convicted Biederman last month of attempted murder and using a weapon of mass destruction.
The bomb detonated in a parking garage on July 28, 2011, after Janie Biederman touched the vehicle's brake pedal. She suffered burns to her arms and legs.
Thomas Biederman maintained his innocence, but prosecutors argued he had motive -- a $430,000 life insurance policy -- and opportunity.
