MOUNT VERNON, Ind. (AP) - A southwestern Indiana man has been sentenced to 70 years in prison for fatally shooting his former girlfriend last year in front of their teenage son and others.

A judge sentenced Jason Perry during a court hearing Monday. Perry pleaded guilty last month to charges of murder and being a habitual offender for the May 2013 shooting in Princeton that killed 34-year-old Jesica Tice.

The Princeton Daily Clarion reports (https://bit.ly/1lCFNrI ) Perry didn’t speak during the hearing. Perry bowed his head as Logan Tice testified, saying he didn’t consider Perry his father and describing Perry as a stalker who beat his mother.

Authorities say Perry shot Jesica Tice twice at close range as she and other family members were leaving a Princeton restaurant where they had celebrated Logan’s eighth-grade graduation.
