Brent Benefield Sentencing

A judge is expected to decide on a punishment on Wednesday for the Texoma man found guilty of killing his four-month-old son.

After weeks inside a Wichita County courtroom, the jury has recommended that Brent Benefield be sentenced to ten years in prison for that death.  The jury also recommended a five year sentence for continuous violence against his wife.

The panel suggested Benefield serve both sentences together, meaning Benefield could spend a maximum of ten years behind bars but a minimum of five years if granted parole for good behavior.
