A Lubbock jury found Barry Thoms guilty of Capital Murder and sentenced him to 8-years in prison.
The verdict came Friday, and the sentence followed on Saturday. The case stems back to New Year's day of 2004. That's when Thoms killed 79-year-old Dorman Shaw at his Central Lubbock home. Prosecutors were not seeking the death penalty in the case, instead they wanted life in prison. Now, Thoms is eligible for parole in four years.
