COLUMBUS, Ind. — A former Edinburgh man who was on probation for the 1985 murder of a Columbus used car dealer was sentenced to 20 years in prison for robbing a Morgan County bank.

Joseph G. “Jody” Everroad, 53, who was ordered in 1988 to serve 60 years for the murder of Wesley Tichenor, was sentenced Tuesday after being convicted by a jury of armed robbery and theft. The charges were in connection with a June 4, 2012, holdup at the First Merchants Bank in Morgantown.
