A Floyd County man has been sentenced for stealing from a grave.
Randall Vickers, 28, of Melvin was sentenced to two years in jail on Tuesday in Floyd County Circuit Court. Last month, Vickers pleaded guilty to stealing a UK flower wreath from the grave of 19-year-old Anthony Osborne in February.
A Grand Jury indicted Vickers in June on charges of violating graves and theft by unlawful taking or disposition.
The judge reportedly scolded Vickers during sentencing for the crime.
