Pierceton Man’s Attempt To Lighten Murder Sentence Rejected

A Pierceton man’s attempt to lighten a life sentence in the murder of a toddler nine years ago has been rejected. 41-year old Ian Clark was sentenced to life without parole in the death of 2-year old Samantha Muchowicz.

Clark’s defense team claimed that he was drunk at the time and should have been facing lesser charges. He also says his defense council, who has died since the trial ended, was sub-standard.
