Convicted murdered to be sentenced in Ottawa Friday

Posted by wlpo on April 28, 2016

The man who killed an Ottawa truck wash owner at this time last year will learn his fate Friday afternoon.

William Horman faces up to 60 years in prison when he’s sentenced by Judge H. Chris Ryan. Horman who is 49 years old was found guilty of beating Robert Dowd to death, burning his body, and dumping the remains in the Fox River. Prosecutors think Horman and Dowd had a business partnership that went wrong.

Jonathan Beckman of Wedron worked out a deal with the prosecution and testified that he was with Horman on the night everything happened. He was sentenced to 5 years last week for his role in the murder.
