BECKLEY - A Raleigh County man is sentenced to 15 years in prison today.
41-year-old Charles William Young was sentenced to the maximum of 15 years by Judge John Hutchison. Young was initially charged last September with first degree murder for the death of Fairdale resident Frank Acord.
Acord was reported missing by family members that February and his body was discovered in March. Investigators say Acord died from multiple gunshot wounds. Young entered a Kennedy plea to voluntary manslaughter in Raleigh Circuit Court in July and faced three to fifteen years in prison.
