Fremont Man Sentenced for Obstruction in Steuben Co. Murder Case
Closing the book on a Steuben County murder, a Fremont man was sentenced Monday for obstruction of justice in the July 2013 case.
19-year old Lucas Baxla was sentenced to 18 months for getting rid of a gun that was used to shoot and kill Ruben Sanchez Jr. of Munice. Two others involved in the case have also been sentenced.
In June, 19-year old Tyler Biggs was sentenced to 15 years for conspiracy to commit murder. Biggs admitted he handed the gun to 28-year old Mark Hines who later shot and killed Sanchez at Jimmerson Lake.
Hines was given a 45-year sentence for the crime last fall.
