Towne reacts to Horman sentence

Posted by wlpo on May 1, 2016

“It’s potentially a life sentence”, said LaSalle County States Attorney Brian Towne, Friday, reacting to the punishment handed a 49-year old Dayton man.  William Horman was sentenced Friday to 40 years in prison for the death of truck wash owner, Robert Dowd.  Horman was found guilty of killing the Ottawa man, burning his body and throwing the remains in the Fox River.

Specifically, Ryan gave Horman 35 years for the Dowd’s murder and 5 more years for concealing a homicide.  Horman could have some time knocked off the second sentence, according to Judge Ryan. The earliest the Dayton man could get out of prison is in his mid 80’s.
