SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — A judge has imposed a 40- to 80-year sentence on a man convicted in the death of a man whose body was found in a sport utility vehicle at the bottom of a northeastern Pennsylvania ravine a year ago.
The (Scranton) Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1pMeIo7 ) reports that Lackawanna County Judge Terrence Nealon imposed the maximum sentence on 24-year-old Jason Dominick. He was convicted of third-degree murder and conspiracy in the death of 24-year-old Frank Bonacci, whose body was found in an SUV on a ledge above Roaring Brook in July 2013.
Defense attorney Bernard Brown had asked the judge to combine the murder and conspiracy convictions and impose only a 17- to 34-year term.
Twenty-four-year-old Neil Pal was earlier convicted of first-degree murder and faces a mandatory life term without parole.
