CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- One family is taking solace, knowing the man suspected of viciously beating Leann Quinn has been given a life sentence.
Joey Jeffery was found guilty of kidnapping, malicious wounding, robbery and assault in February.
"His only intent was to torture the victim," said Kanawha County assistant prosecutor, Tera Salango. "Now that Mr. Jeffrey is going to be incarcerated, probably for the rest of his life, I hope that if there's anyone out there with information, they're no longer afraid of him."
Before being sentenced, Jeffery told Judge Tod Kaufman "I am sorry for the things that I've done. But I did not do the things I've been accused of."
