Springfield man sentenced to 45 years in double shooting


A Springfield man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison in a shooting that left one man dead and another wounded.

LaFayette Starr entered a plea agreement instead of going to trial for the June 2017 shooting in Sarcoxie. Responding officers found 22-year-old Tayler Anderson, of Carthage, dead.

The second victim, Gage Williams, was wounded but survived. Starr will be required to serve 85% of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
