A Crawford County judge sentenced Jeremy Dwight Brake Sr. to 17 years in prison Friday for the 2016 killing of Michael King.

A jury of nine men and three women found Brake, 38, guilty of second-degree murder for the killing of King, 56, in October 2016 at King's trailer. Brake had been charged with first-degree murder, arson and several other felonies. The jury recommended the maximum sentence of 15 years for second-degree murder. A two-year sentence was also added since a firearm was used.

Brake had been found guilty earlier Friday by the jury of arson, possession of a firearm by a felon, criminal mischief, tampering with evidence and endangering the welfare of a minor. The judge accepted the jury’s recommendation that the sentencing on those charges run concurrent with the 17-year sentencing.

Crawford County Prosecuting Attorney Marc McCune had asked the jury to sentence Brake to over 100 years of jail and noted he would be eligible for parole in just over 20 years. Cottrell noted that Brake will get credit for time served since October 2016.
