Man sentenced for murder of West Michigan accountant Andy Brown, 37, maintained his innocence while speaking before the court Friday morning as he was sentenced to 37 1/2 years in prison. His wife said she stands by Brown and they plan to appeal. On July 14th, a jury found Brown guilty of second-murder of his boss, CPA David Locey, 70, and guilty of felony firearm.
