By Herald Staff
A Grandview man was sentenced to 65 years in the Indiana Department of Correction Tuesday after a jury found him guilty in September of murder.
Spencer County Judge Jon Dartt also ordered defendant Alan Lee Bennett to pay restitution to the family of Linda Bowman in the amount of $27,688.39, a $5,000 fine and court costs.
The jury — this was Spencer County's first jury trial during the COVID-19 pandemic — found Bennett guilty of the March 6, 2019, murder of Bowman of the Grandview/Chrisney area.
Police launched a death investigation after a 12:56 p.m. CT call Wednesday, March 6, 2019, to the Spencer County 911 Dispatch Center reporting shots fired during an ongoing domestic dispute at 6280 N. Highland Road, Grandview.
Linda F. Bowman, 64, was found deceased at the scene and 52-year-old Bennett was found injured.
Investigators determined that Bowman and Bennett had been living together. Police also said an autopsy confirmed Bowman’s death was the result of a single gunshot wound to the head.
