Pair sentenced for killing Mercer man

PRINCETON, W.Va. -- Two people have been sentenced for their roles in the 2011 slaying of a Mercer County man.

On Monday, Tammy Lee Keen and Thomas Tyler Hall, both 39, received 40-year sentences for second-degree murder.

Mercer County Circuit Court Judge William Sadler gave Keen an additional 10 years for robbery. Her sentences are to run consecutively.

Keen and Hall had pleaded guilty earlier this year. The Princeton residents originally were charged with first-degree murder in the March 2011 death of Timothy DeWitt, 41, of Princeton.

Highway maintenance workers found DeWitt's body near an Interstate 77 bridge in the Camp Creek area. He had been shot several times.
