Final Suspect Sentenced In Upshur Murder

A sentence today for the last of three defendants, arrested in connection with a brutal murder and beheading in Upshur County. Jason Baughman was sentenced to 20 years for a charge of conspiracy to commit murder. In April 2004, Upshur County Investigators found the "decapitated" body of "Joe Carroll Nickelbur" on "Cherokee Trace Road" near Gilmer.

Baughman's co-defendants, Jeremy and Scott Narramore, were convicted of killing "Nickelbur" last year.
