Family of Perry Co. murder victim upset over plea deal

Family members of a murdered Perry County man are concerned the man who admitted to the killing will receive a light sentence.

Samuel Louive, 31, was shot to death in November 2011 outside a home on Baker Street in Combs.

Timothy Ryan Sizemore, 29, was originally charged with murder.

Last week Sizemore struck a plea deal where he agreed to plea guilty to first degree manslaughter, a lesser charge. In exchange, Sizemore would spend 10 years in prison.

Louive's stepdaughter, Destiny Turner, said, "I had to have therapy and I couldn't stay at my house for a month because it happened on my porch."

Sizemore is scheduled for sentencing on July 11th.

A judge will decide whether to accept the plea deal.

Special prosecutor Parker Boggs did not want to comment.
