GILMER -- A jury on Tuesday sentenced Glenn Wade Myers Jr., 55, of Big Sandy to 60 years in prison after convicting him of murder in the shooting death of his sister.

Myers, 55, of Big Sandy, testified Tuesday morning that he did not kill 52-year-old Cindy Espinoza, who was shot this past summer outside her rural Nutmeg Road home. Testimony established she was shot through the mouth from close range with a shotgun.

The six-man, six-woman jury deliberated more than four hours before finding Myers guilty, and less than 40 minutes in determining the sentence. Myers would have to serve half the 60-year term before becoming eligible for parole.
