Washington Man Gets 27 Months in Dragging Death

NEWPORT, Wash. (AP) - A man convicted in the dragging death of
an Eastern Washington University student has been sentenced to 27
months in prison.
Wendell C. Sinn Jr. was sentenced Monday. Last week, the
45-year-old entered an Alford plea to second-degree manslaughter,
meaning he didn't admit guilt but felt he would be found guilty if
he went to trial for the death of Jerid S. Sturman-Camyn.
The 20-year-old student was dragged more than 13 miles to his
death by a pickup driven by Sinn's teenage son in November 2007.
Sinn was arrested after witnesses say he placed a noose around
Sturman-Camyn's neck and attached it to the back of his pickup.
Justin Sinn, told investigators he didn't know he'd been
dragging Sturman-Camyn. He hasn't been charged.
