Escambia Man Gets 50 Years For Killing His Wife
February 8, 2013
A 51-year old Escambia County man that shot and killed his wife in October 2011 has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.
James Scott Thompson was convicted of second degree murder in December, with Judge Michael Allen handing down the half century sentence Thursday. He will be required to serve at least 25 years before being eligible for release.
Thompson shot his wife, 46-year old Bobbi Thompson, in the face during a drunken rage at their home in the 4900 block of LaVentana Circle. Deputies found Thompson leaning over his wife’s body when they arrived on scene.
