A Scott County man was sentenced on Thursday to 45 years in prison for the 1983 murder of an inmate at the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City. Indiana State Police report Paul Stucker was found guilty earlier this month in LaPorte County Superior Court for the murder of Johnny Hodge. Stucker was found guilty of throwing several gallons of a liquid accelerant onto Hodge, who was locked in a cell, causing him to be burnt alive. The case was reopened in 2005 after state police say they received information that Stucker was involved in Hodge's murder.
