Last of 3 men sentenced for 2014 triple shooting in Orange County, Indiana
The prison time James Davidson is facing for the deaths of Corey Harris and Nicholas Fields.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The last of three men convicted in connection with a fatal 2014 triple shooting and robbery in Orange County, Indiana, will spend 40 years in prison.
A judge sentenced James Davidson, of Marengo, Indiana, to the term Monday. Davidson pleaded guilty last month to a charge of robbery resulting in serious bodily injury. The prosecutor dropped two counts of murder and a count of attempted murder in the case, a court clerk said.
Indiana State Police arrested Davidson and two other men days after the June 23, 2014, shootings at a home outside Paoli.
Police said Davidson, John Carpenter and Elbert Brooks traveled to the home seeking drugs and money. Corey Harris and Nicholas Fields were shot and killed. Another man, Daniel Smitson, was wounded in the incident.
Carpenter received a 50-year term last month after a jury convicted him of murder, voluntary manslaughter and robbery, court records said.
Brooks pleaded guilty to murder and attempted robbery in January 2015 and received a sentence of 100 years, according to court records.
Harris was married and had two young daughters at the time of his death, WDRB News reported in June 2014.
Police searched for more than a week in Orange and Crawford Counties before they arrested Carpenter, Davidson and Brooks.
