Lengthy attack earns man 23-year sentence



A man accused of beating his girlfriend for three hours and threatening to kill her with a knife before she escaped through a window in April 2013 could spend up to 23 years in prison.

Billy Wayne Nunley, 42, of Seymour, received a 23-year sentence from Jackson Circuit Judge Richard W. Poynter on July 25. Nunley had been convicted two times previously on domestic battery charges involving the same woman.

He pleaded guilty to attempted criminal deviate conduct, a Class A felony, on June 27. The state agreed to drop 11 other charges stemming from the most recent incident.
