Stover man sentenced to life in prison for double homicide
LEBANON - A Laclede County judge sentenced a 27-year-old Stover man to life in prison Tuesday for murdering an Ivy Bend couple.
Ronald Blowers will serve two life sentences for the murders, which will run consecutively.
Blowers pleaded guilty in Laclede County Court on March 27, 2015, to the double homicide case from December 2012.
He had been charged with killing of Wayne and Mable Wells.
An autopsy revealed they died of blunt force trauma, which police believed came from a pipe, knife and screwdriver. A pipe was found later on near the scene.
The same day, Blowers admitted to being present at the Wells' home during the homicide.
