ATHENS, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A man accused of killing his father is set to spend the next year-and-a-half in a state prison on unrelated charges.
Paul J. Roberts, 41, of Glouster was sentenced on Tuesday to 18 months in prison for identity fraud, forgery, grand theft and drug possession. He had reached a plea deal with prosecutors for those crimes prior to being charged with the murder of his father, Paul E. Roberts, 61, in October.
If convicted of murder, Roberts could face life in prison without the possibility of parole. Roberts pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.
