Former Marine will finish 60 year sentence for murder
SANTA ROSA COUNTY -- A former Marine convicted of killing a Santa Rosa County teen will have to finish out his 60-year prison sentence.
Brandon Ward was in court this morning in Milton seeking a shorter prison term.
Back in 2006, Ward stabbed Joey Hall to death and nearly stabbed Joseph Ruinato to death.
Ward attacked Hall and Ruinato when they dropped off Ward's 16-year-old girlfriend at her parent's home in Milton after a weekend party.
Ward was given two consecutive 30 year sentences for the crimes.
The judge says nothing has changed since sentencing to warrant a change in the sentence.
